The temple is famous for circumambulation by devotees after having done with their desires. As the temple is in outside the city, RTC provides transportation facilities from various depots like mehidhipatnam, dilsukhnagar etc

I had visited this temple only once, but It was very good experience which I can remember for life. The unique thing about this temple is Pradakshina we do for 108 times. it was so good to see all the people who visit temple do pradakshina and one more good thing about this temple is they don't expect any donations...

My review is for tourists, devotees do not need a review to go and visit the temple. Must visit for any tourist who wishes to witness what devotees will do to please the deity who is believed to bless with a VISA if asked for. Skip if you are a regular tourist who is in Hyderabad to visit the touristic... More

Well-known as VISA god amongst people of Telangana & Andhra Pradesh, people believe that a visit, prayer with 11 pradakshinas to lord balaji of this temple will resolve their problems. Once resolved, people visit again & do 108 pradakshinas.

Here there is belief that if you visit the temple and make a wish then that will be fulfilled if you make 108 rounds around the temple. Also this temple is very famous for Visa applications getting cleared. Better dont visit on saturdays & sundays as the rush will be heavy on those days. If anyone is planning to make... More
