His ashram was near Bhind town of Madhya Pradesh state, where he undertook great penance and austerities for ultimate realization of God.

"Kaushiki Devnadi" river is identified as Kunwari or Kwari river. The name of Bhind town is named after this great saint. An ancient temple of Vibhandak or Bhindi Rishi is still located at Bhind. According to classic "Parmal Raso", King Prithiviraj Chauhan encamped in the dense forest at the" Samadhi Sthal" (place for memorial) of Vibhandak Rishi, while going to fought with Chandels in the "Battle of Sirsagarh" and defeated their commander Malkhan.
