The temple complex has three floors wherein the ground floor enshrines two idols of Hanumanji- one for Paritranay Sadhunam (protection of the good) and the other for Vinashay Cha Dushkreetam (elimination of the wicked). Around the garbhagriha is another passage where the idol of Lord Shiva can be seen. As one takes the stairs to the first floor, idols of Goddess Durga, Lord Ganesha, Lord Buddha, Sri Satyanarayan, Lord Rama, Mother Sita, Goddess Sararwati, Lord Krishna, Nandi and Mother Parvati bless devotees with their benevolent look. The second floor houses the Sanskar Mandap where all rituals, mantra-chants, japa, recitals and Satyanarayana Katha are performed.
