The height of most of the statues in the temple has been calculated on the basis of 6 points. The statues of Gaj, Singh, Hanuman Ji and Garudaji are 6 feet each. According to Prashant Pandey, “two 6-6 feet statues made by the sculptors of Jaipur are also installed at the main gate. Two 6 feet tall lions, 6 feet tall statues of Hanumanji and 6 feet tall Garuda Dev are adding to the beauty of the temple.”

He further added that the Ganapati seated above the main entrance of the temple, which is known as Ganesh Pol, has also come from Jaipur. This Ganpati is 11 inches tall. On going inside, Jai and Vijay of 8 feet each have been carved on the wall outside the sanctum sanctorum. Hanumanji and Ganeshji of 33-33 inches in size have been placed on Koligokh.
