This temple might be the only temple in the entire thimi which has its own green parks. And that thing certainly attracts a lot of visitors. However, people also gather here to celebrate jatras after the tongue piercing festival. During Balkumari Jatra, the seven of the palanquins are whirled over here. With that, the place is also used to conduct different rituals like Bartabanda. It is actually a compulsory activity to do puja over there while doing Bartabanda (for the locals only).

Recently some new formations and restorations have been completed over there. The making of pati, Dabali and the stone-paved courtyard was done in 2077.
