The pindi was excavated recently by the present family members of Pandit Jagat Ram Sharma as the caretakers.

This temple over the years has gained immense prominence mainly due to the wholehearted strong belief of the devotees in Kalika Mata.

During the days of Navratri, a large number of devotees visit this particular temple.
