The temple is on the outskirts of Hyderabad. It clocks over 45 kilometers from Secunderabad and takes around 2 hours to reach unless in early hours. A family Temple maintained by the family but the Deity, Lord Venkateswara is accessible to public without discrimination or any favor. A place to tell a common man what is equality irrespective of you... More

The devotion of the devotees whose wishes are fulfilled is worth a watch here. The devotees doing the parikramas of Balaji after the wish fulfillment is a sight in its' own. Avoid months just after the exam results are out to avoid the crowd if you want to visist just for darshan. Otherwise there is also a time slot allotted... More

Temple is located around 40 kms from middle of Hyderabad City. It is 17 km from Mehedipatnam. It is one of the oldest temples in Hyderabad. The best part of the temple is that this temple does not accept any money from the devotees, does not have a hundi , no green channel or privileges for VVIPs. The only fee... More

Popularly known as "Visa Balaji", this is one temple where one can worship in peace. No one asks you for donations and there are no touts following you. Definitely recommended to those who are religiously inclined.

This temple got the name of VISA god. All those who go to embassy for VISA stamping come here and take 108 rounds. This temple is very famous in Hyderabad.

It is a very good place to go. But I don't suggest it for travellers to Hyderabad as it will take near about 5 extra hours. For travellers to hyd If u still want to visit the place hire a taxi for 8 hours in the morning. Leave hotel by 7 or 7.30 in the morning. Visit temple have breakfast... More

Cool,peaceful place away from city. Also famous as Visa God Temple. The best part is the discipline of the devotees who circle the temple before and after the wish. The poojari makes the same entertaining and easy by his running informative commentary.

The temple is popularly known as visa temple as the devotees believe getting the blessings of Blaji helps in getting visa. This temple has not gone under government control. There is no hundi in the temple. They earn money by selling devotional books and there is no force to buy those books. The place is good and there is transport... More

Went for peace and happiness and i would definitely say it is a place , pradhakshinam (walking with the crowd around the temple) and praying for well being of all are the highlights.Above all, the almighty is there & commonly youngster's over here come for their visa with prayers.
