It was said that baba appeared in person to santhana deva kumar on Jan 2003 and instructed him to construct his temple here. He was doing real estate business and one of his friend who is living abroad asked him to sell his vacant land and finally Santhana Deva Kumar ji himself purchased this land and constructed this temple. It took 3 years to finish this temple. During construction, it rained heavily and the work was temporarily stopped for some days. Everybody thought that due to heavy rain, the gopuram which was half finished will be demolished But at that time it was said that Baba appeared as Naga Sai and safeguarded the gopuram for 3 days continuously.
Another incident is that when Baba’s pratima was brought from Jaipur and people planned to take the pratima inside the temple and install it on Sunday, they were unable to pull the pratima that day. The next day being pournnima, they tried and Baba came very easily inside the temple and took his seat (Baba’s Wish). Shrirama navami, Gurupoornima and Mahasamadhi day are celebrated grandly in this temple. Around 3000 devotees visit this temple on Thursdays.
In the entrance there is a 9 feet height pratima of Baba in standing position. The 9 feet represents Navavidha Bhakthi. In the left side Lord Ganesh, Shiva-Parvati and Lord Dattatreya (Trimurthy) pratima are installed. In the right side Dhuni fire, Nandhi and Lord Hanuman's pratima are installed. Baba's pratuima is installed in the centre. Annadanam is happening every Thursdays.
