The temple has been built according to the Ancient Vedic shilpashastra techniques and no cement or concrete has been used in the construction. Besides Ambaji marble, Makrana marble and Udaipur pink marble has also been used in the temple building. The pink stone used for construction has been brought from Bansipahadpur in Rajasthan and is similar to the stone used in Akshardham at Gandhinagar. The first shrine has an idol of Harikrishna Maharaj which is a 'panchdhatu murti', made from an alloy composed of five metals. Besides, there are idols of Lord Krishna and Radha made in marble. The Central shrine in the temple has idols of Lord Swaminarayan, Mul Akshar Gunatitanand Swami and Gopalanand Swami all made of marble. The third shrine has a marble idol of Ghanshyam Maharaj. The shrines in 'pradakshina' have marble idols of Bhagatji Maharaj, Shastriji Maharaj, Yogiji Maharaj and Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
