The page with below massage:

The site is currently not available due to technical problems. Please try again later. Thank you for your understanding.

Yes, there are 2 templates files that handle this in your theme:

  1. maintenance-page.tpl.php: The theming template used for when your site is in maintenance mode.
  2. maintenance-page--offline.tpl.php: The theming template used for when your site doesn't have database connectivity.

Read Theming the Drupal maintenance page on d.o for more information.
