This is OK in a narrative where the three children have already been mentioned and are known to the reader. It does not seem suitable as a way of introducing the three children.

cat navy 4252) My father with we three children visited a famous astrologer in Delhi in 1985.

This does not work well.

Thank you.

cat navy 425Sir, would you please construct a sentence to get the above idea clearly.

Assuming the three children are siblings, you can say e.g.:

My father along with me and my two sisters visited a famous astrologer in Delhi in 1985. (you have two sisters)

My father along with me and two of my sisters visited a famous astrologer in Delhi in 1985. (you have more than two sisters)

Change as appropriate depending on how many brothers and sisters.
