There is an ancient BELL in this temple. This bell was brought from Goa/Vasai by CHimaji Aappa (brother of great peshwa FIrst Bajirao) during his invasion on Portugese colony. The invasion was to crush the iniquision posed by portuguese in Goa for several years. That crushed many not christian families.
There are 5 such very large bells hung in different temples near by pune.
