The primary philosophy of the temple is to approach the sequences and worship of the sect from the perspective of Sita , the daughter of Mithila , who is considered an incarnation of Mithila's presiding deity Mahamaya Ma Syama. The palace is divided into two sections , the courtyard section constructed of thin bricks and lemon mortar from the 18th century and the brick work section constructed in neo-palladian style from the 19th century. The palace incorporates distinct features from Oudh's Perso-Mughal architecture with the splendid Baradari or 12 doored hall as the reception of the temple, to a French chateau facade along with Rajput courtyards all built with indigenous techniques and artisans. The courtyards are in the process of being restored traditionally and presently the guests are houses in the 19th century private quarters of the family of Aruna Sharma.
Aruna Sharma presently presides over the temple management and has steered its restoration with her late husband Chaturbhuj Sharma.
