On entering the temple premises, one gets to see a single wooden block covered with silver sheets and a deepmala carved in stone. On further entering the Sabhamandap, one notices a lion fixed in the centre of it, facing the deities. Outside the Garbhagriha, idols of Ganesha and Vithal-Rukmini can be seen as well. The throne of the deities is beautifully carved and partly sheathed in silver.

During the British rule, the two islands, Worli-Malbar Hill creek was proposed to be connected and the work was entrusted to Shri Ramji Shivji Prabhu who got visions from the Goddess herself who directed him to bring-out the three idols from the water and place it on a hilltop. He obliged and a temple was later constructed atop the hill, dedicated to the three deities.
