Jagdish Shyam Das, President of the temple said, "The situation of Gaya in the summer season is famous in the world…. (Therefore) we have installed fans and ACs for gods and goddesses here. The idols of deities near which they are installed include goddess Radha, lord Krishna, lord Jagannath."

Das further said that fans and ACs have been installed here by the devotees.
