This is small temple located near Hyderabad and the roads connecting the temple are very good. It has parking facility and also lockers to keep mobile phones. Usually people make 108 turns round the temple.

The most powerful god for lord balaji were people believe as VISA GOD --- CHILKUR BALAJI TEMPLE. For most of them it worked and people started believing it as VISA GOD. There is no VIP SYSTEM here. No money no bribing for fast darshans... or the other.

As you enter the temple you will see many people going around the temple prior entering the temple. For anyone coming to Chilkur Balaji temple, you have to make 11 rounds around the temple prior entering... More

it's a very good religious place of Venkateshwara frequented more by the Visa aspirants to the USA. A lot many people can be seen circumambulating the Venkateshwara shrine. The management is very good which keeps place safe and clean. Almost 35 kms from the city. It also offers a good scenic drive through the arid stony zone of Telangana.

Nice place to go around the God doing the darshan. The only problem over there is the beggars... More
