The entrance to the temple complex is through a huge gateway with two arches and kiosks at the top of the arches. The main temple has two sanctums with white towers over them. The first sanctum has the idol of Balaji in a standing posture.

The second sanctum houses the idols of Lord Ram, Lakshman, and Goddess Sita and is situated just opposite to Lord Balaji’s idol. Thus, the two face each other every time and this is a perfect depiction of the strong bonds of Hanuman Ji with Lord Ram.

Large sitting space is present between the two sanctums which is used by devotees to sit and dedicate their prayers by reciting Hanuman Chalisa and other hymns.
