Later it was rebuilt/renovated by Vrishbhanu Kunwari, the Queen of Tikamgarh in the year 1891, which exists even today.
The main temple is built around an open court in which stands the small shrine of Rampada. The main idols installed in the garbhgrih (sanctum), are of Lord Ram & Devi Sita. The sanctum is very beautifully decorated.
