However, there is lot of confusion over the presiding deity of the temple. Some people are of the opinion that the temple is dedicated to Goddess Ramachandi and this is why it is known as Ramachandi temple. But, there is another section of people who say that the temple is dedicated to Goddesses Mayadevi, the wife of Sun God.

It is because of this reason that, the temple is sometimes referred to as the Mayadevi Temple also.
