A temple named Mauni Baba has renovated this temple. A big fair is held in this temple at Navaratri. There are devotees of nearby districts.

The Ashram of Durvasa is located in village Nagoghi , on the banks of the Sengur River, 5 kilometers from the town of Boraur in Block Malasa,. The natural beauty of the ashram is worth seeing. According to people saying, , the Durvasa Rishi came here and performed penance, before the Suryavanshi king Dilip of epic period, and every day used to go to Bithoor (Brahmavarta) to take bath in Ganga. Pleased with his penance, Ganga Mata said that I will come and visit your ashram. Durvasa ji said how will I know that Ganga Mata has come? On which Ganga Mata had said that the bhau tree had grown up. Even today, the tree of the bhau is near the ashram. Chandragupta Vikramaditya had built a magnificent temple at Durvasa Rishi Ashram in the Gupta period of Kalanthar 500 B.C.. But due to the flood of the river, it could not stay for long.
