Religious place - though a bit crowded but that is expected. A bit raw currently in terms of facilities - infrastructure could be worked on to offer some world class facilities for ease of darshans.

I went along with my friends on 29th July to visit the temple and it was a good experience. We started around 7 in the morning and took the ORR and took the Appa Junction Exit. Rest is all signage. The temple is not a very heavily built one like the Tirupati or or other famous ones, however, the devotees... More

The Lord is more than just visa granting, He grants all wishes. And the Lord knows what wishes to grant and what not to. This may be realized by us devotees only later.

The temple is very crowded off late what with all youngsters wanting visas..The Lord Balaji residing here is famous and called visa god.the place is well connected by busses. its a pleasant drive on the orr and 26 km away from central Hyderabad.Enroute on can visit a small forest Sanctuary and watch some deer.

I reached the temple around 12 noon on a hot Monday during summer and was taken by surprise to see the rush. The devotees have to leave behind their mobile phones and cameras, any other belongings if you wish, in the locker before entering the temple. You have to deposit a small fee, as less as Rs 5 or Rs... More

It is different than the other temples in India, even though there is too much of crowd, the authorities have succeeded in keeping this temple clean. There is no money collection at all. Must visit !!!
