We have visited the temple on a number of occasions. The Balaji Temple is in the outskirts of the city. People have faith that their VISA for going overseas would be obtained without much hindrances if they visit the temple. They do pradakshina of the temple 108 times. Hence weekends and Holidays are crowded. The most important point is that... More

I went with a couple of my friends. Even though I am not an avid temple fan, there was nothing striking about the temple that will hook you up.

I have been to this place. It's usually very crowded due to lot of devotees coming to do pradakshina (Making rounds around the diety). It's lord venkateshwara Balaji who gives Darshan. The popular belief is that any wish which is prayed to God and make 11 rounds around the God. After fulfillment of the wish the devotee has to do... More

One must visit this temple - But you have to come early - around 5 am. Do the Pradakshams - 11 for first timmers - Say your prayers - Ask for your wishes - Once granted - do 108 Pradakshanams. If you are late = They will close the gates - Tip - If you cannot finish 108 in one... More

Few things I like about this temple.. It doesn't have hundi.. No VIP darshanams.. No tickets.. Would suggest to visit on weekdays to avoid weekend heavy rush.

The temple does not have any hundi [i think this in the only temple in India]...hence thankfully out of endowment control...bhakti and bhaktas given importance here...temple famous for fulfilling wishes of bhaktas seeking visa to go abroad. .also famous as visa balaji...also dont forget to do 108 pradkashina here...

it is just another temple. Drive around the place is something I may go again but temple is okay. I don't know whether it should be on a list of a traveller. Again, if you go on cycle and are ready for riding around 70kms, then this place is good.
