Best part of this temple is - no donations .... no priests running after you to perform some rituals for you in exchange of currency. Pure devotion and chants and prayers and parikramas ... Priests here suggest you not close eyes during darshanam, rather absorb and internalize balaji. Liked it a lot!!! Choose your time of visit carefully as the... More

This temple is very crowded in the weekends so I would advise to visit the place in the weekdays. Late evening around 6:30 PM and you can have a peaceful darshan

This may be the only temple that does not have hundis for accepting offerings. It is believed that making 11 rounds(pradakshanam) around the main sanctum will fulfill our wish. It is crowded on weekends. There is a small shiva temple adjoining the main one. Ample parking space and many eating outlets even a Cafe Coffee Day.

That location is where this temple is now built. The parking is very close to the actual... More

Chilkur Balaji Temple is located at outskirts of Hyderabad. You can see Lord Venkateshwara Swamy in that temple. Which is very good place to visit. You will not see any hundis to put your offerings which is one good thing. Everyone should go in oneline only no special darshans are available in Chilkur temple.

Tucked far away from the maddening traffic, Chilkur Balaji is a great place for worshippers and non worshippers as well. Car parking is easy to find, a small CCD beckons the travellers - though I preferred the local filter coffee... and small shopkeepers offer to host your shoes as long as you buy Rs 10 - 20 of prasadam for...

Do I need to say it again. This is the temple President Obama should thank for getting Indian talent in the US. Personally, I went here on my way to another place I was visiting.
