The temple is at a really serene and peaceful location, away from the town. It has a meditation room, which is perfect for meditating after days work or before going to work. The main idol is of Ram, Sita and Lakshman, accompanied by Ganpati, Maa Sharda and Maa Durga. The main hall of the temple has a really big stage for performances and ample seating arrangement for spectators.
