Many visitors also come to touch the healing stone in the temple, which is believed to have curative powers. There temple has a Ganpati statue close to the entrance.

Since Monday is a day dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple has special activities through the day including an aarti every two hours and special live bhajans in the evening.
