In Samvat 1777 (1720 A.D.), Diwan Abhaisingh at the behest of the then king of Jodhpur, renovated the old temple. The temple took its present shape at this time and the idol was enshrined in the Sanctum Sanctorum. There is an open chowk before the entrance gate of the temple. A big hall for prayers of the size 40'6"x15'4" is also there. In the South-East is the temple of GopinathJi . This is the holy pond near the temple from where the idol was retrieved. It is believed that a dip in this pond cures a person from ailments and brings good health. Filled with devotional fervour, people take ritual dips in the Shyam Kund. Bathing during the annual Phalguna Mela festival is deemed especially salutary.
