For all devotees unable to go to Tirupati, it is believed that Lord Balaji appeared in Chilkur to grant their wishes. A small, quaint temple, but extremely crowded, especially on weekends.

Nice temple. Auspicious place. Has been developed in last few years. People coming from all over India to visit this temple. Rush in Saturday or Sunday. If you visit after 5PM, you will in main temple and seek darshan from nearby lord. Roads are good now and facilities are improved. CCD is also there.
