Henceforth, he came to be known as Jassa Singh Ramgarihia. And his group also was popularly known as Ramgarihias. Just like other Sikh misls, the Ramgarihia misl established its rule and served the GurSikh Panth.
Jassa Singh conquered DinaNagar, Batala, KalaNaur, Sri Gobindpur, Kadia, Ghumaan, etc. cities and parts of Doaba. He was particularly popular for raging wars to rescue brahmin girls from the Hissar rulers and return them to their respective homes. Jassa Singh Ramgarihia was a practicing Gurbani enthusiast, partaker of food only after serving others, and a brave warrior. He took part in the Khalsa battles against Ahmed Shah Duranni.
Jassa Singh Ramgarihia died in 1802. His son Jodh Singh joined with Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1808. The Ramgarihia bunga at Amritsar, erected in remembrance of Jassa Singh Ramgarihia, is popular even today.
