The village deity has neither a gigantic temple, nor claims princes to patronise it with invaluable gifts in any form, but it is exercising her powers over lakhs of people living in a radius of fifty miles. The powerful icon in sitting posture is installed on a dias in a small space forming an integral part of the village portal and decorated only with ghastly red coloured rustling silks and colourful garlands, but her infinite compassion to lift her adorers is something phenomenal that hundreds and hundreds of people every day visit either to reedem the vows taken with the sacrifice of cocks, goats etc., or seeking her grace to fording of unbearable hardships confronting them. She rains boons and turns the mournful faces into smiling visages. Dreadful diseases like small pox, and several other contagious ailments take to flight. the moment prayers offered to her in person or by the interested people. Being a village deity of Balipriya category, appeasing her with animals is the age - old tradition and once it is vowed, the victims get freed from their ailments and problems.

Daily worship is also offered with due veneration.
