the original idol of the varadvinayak can be seen outside the sanctum,Since the idol was in badly weathered condition,temple trustees immersed that idol and consecrated new idol in that place.However,such a decision by the trustees was objected by few people and suit was filed in district court.Two stone idols of Siddhi and Riddhi will be een in the sanctum.Two ganesh idols are situated in the two corners.Idol in the left corner is smeared in vermillion and idol in the right is made up of white marble with trunk turned to the right.The idol is in sitting position,with the trunk turned to the left.The idol faces east.
