ARANYA DEVI

The temple faces the east. The dome of the temple is round. At the entrance of it there is a courtyard and there are two porticos or verandas to the west and north sides. In the west portico there are three bells. The weight of one bell is 25 seers and the other two are fifteen seers each. The portico of the west side is ten feet by eight feet. There are a Shiva linga and Nandi, a charity box (gupta dan peti) for secret offer by the visiting devotees and a well in the west portico.

To the west of the portico there is a space of about 3 feet by 3 feet for the priest and to the west of that place there is the singhasan (throne) of two Aranya Devis which are in the standing pose. The singhasan, of the goddesses is about ten feet high. The statues are of black stone. One statue is three feet high and the other is two feet high. It is said that both are sisters. They are attired in yellow sari with flower garlands and mukuts on their heads. The mukuts are made of paper.

On the left side of Aranya Devi that is on the north side of the temple there are the statues of Radha and Krishna. On their left side are the statues of Ram, Sita, Lakshmana, Bharata and Satrughna. The local businessmen in 1953 A.D installed these. All these statues are made of white stone (marble).
