About 1 Km away from the temple complex of Agroha Dham there was a Madhi (Ancient Temple) of Sheela Mata.Here the local public and Agarwal families from all over India visited for the Mundan ceremony (Head Shaving) of their children and for seeking the blessings of the deity. Late Shri Tilakraj Agarwal decided to develop this old Madhi of Sheela Mata into a big temple as his personal contribution to the development of Agroha and started the work of Sheela Mata Shakti Mandir in the year 1982. He established 'Agroha Vikas Sansthan' for this purpose and started the work of this temple with great enthusiasm.

Seth Shri Tilakraj Agarwal did not live to see the completion of his dream temple of Sheela Mata as he passed away on 8th January, 1988. After his demise his sons Shri Sital Kumar Agarwal and Shri Vinod Kumar Agarwal & their family members completed the work of Sheela Mata Shakti Mandir at Agroha.

The religious Pran Pratishta Samaroh for this temple took place at the hands of His Holiness Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Puri Peeth on 16th February 1992. Shri Chaudhary Bhajanlal Chief Minister of Haryana, Shri Mangiram Gupta Finance Minister of Haryana and Ex-Chief Minister of Haryana Shri Banarasidas Gupta inaugurated the Sheela Mata Shakti Mandir.

Sheela Mata Shakti Mandir was built over the Madhi of Sheela Mata. This is a temple of Tri-Shakti. Tri-Shakti means "the three powers" and combined together refers to three Goddesses: Maha Kali,Maha Laxmi, and Maha Saraswati. The three powers also represent the cosmic energy of the three forms of the supreme God. They indeed are the female aspect of the same forms of the God.

The temple was reconstructed with red stone. It has been designed on the Rajasthani Architectural pattern. The main architect for the temple was Mr. Harshad Chavda from Ahmedabad. The main dome of the temple is 85ft above the ground. Under the main dome is the Madhi of Sheela Mata.
In the Main Temple Complex Idols (Murtis) of Ma Durga, Ma Laxmi, and Ma Saraswati are placed. In addition there are 4 smaller temples built around the main temple building of Shri Ram Darbar – (Shri Ram- Laxman-Sita with Hanumanji in bowed position in front), Shri Radha-Krishna, Shri Hanumanji & Shri Shiv-Parivar – (Shri Shiv-Parvati with their sons Ganeshji and Kartikji). There is an idol of Maharaja Agrasen overlooking the entire Mandir Complex as if overlooking his own Kingdom.

There are gardens around the temple complex with beautiful landscaping which brings in hordes of visitors to visit the temple. There is a Guest House annexe in the Mandir compound by the name of Janki Kutir. Many people visit Agroha to see the Sheela Mata Shakti Mandir and the Mandir has become one of the major tourist attractions in North India, due to its architectural design.

Facing the temple, with folded hands there is a statue of Late Seth Shri Tilakraj Agarwal paying homage to the deities present in the Mandir. The idol is an inspiration to the family members and devotees and reminds us of the contribution of Late Seth Shri Tilakraj Agarwal in the development of Agroha.

Every year during the Bhadra Pad Amavasya (September) a big Carnival / Mela is held in the temple area, wherein thousands of pilgrims come from all over the country, many for the Mundan (Head Shaving) of their children. During the month of February, the temple celebrates its Varshik Utsav (Annual Day) during which a ‘Akhand Paat’ of the Ramayana is held culminating with a Havan and Bhandara where 1000’s of villagers take the benefit of a meal and Prasad.

Another project initiated in Agroha was the Agra Vibhuti Samarak under the name of Shri Agrasen Foundation spread over an area of 10 acres of land purchased by Akhil Bhartiya Aggarwal Samellan for this purpose. The project was started under the able leadership of Shri Banarsi Das Gupta (Ex-CM of Haryana) and Shri Pradip Mittal. This was formed to salute all the Agra Bandhu who were instrumental in the development in Agroha. The project is still under development - however a statue of Seth Shri Tilakraj Agarwal is the first installed under the project reminding everyone about his premier contribution for the development of Agroha.
