On the Northern side of the temple is a Gomukh, a visage of a cow from which flows the tirth holy water. On the West is the Holy Pond. The Lord Ganesha idol in the garbhagriha, sanctum is a recently placed idol, it faces east, is seated and the trunk of the deity turns to the left.

The original idol had been damaged and so the temple trust decided to install a new idol and the old idol was to be cast away. But other devotees objected to this and the matter is now to be decided by the district magistrate and is still under review.

Hence both the old and the new idols can be seen, the older one outside the sanctum, the newer one inside it. As one enters the Garbhagriha one first sees the idols of Riddhi and Siddhi. Then the two idols of Lord Ganesh . One is a idol made in white Marble the other is the idol covered with sindoor.
