Chilkur Balaji temple is around 30-40 km away from Hyderabad city. Belief is that if you go to Chilkur Balaji temple it is equivalent to going to Tirupati Balaji temple. There is very big rush especially on weekends and on mornings. Start early to get darshan without much rush

One of the best temple to be visit in Hyderabad. Most of the students believe this God as VISA GOD. one of the best part is no donation at temple & devoties inform you min to min to see the GOD at the time of Darshan. In holidays time there will be huge public for doing 108.

Pilgrims often visit this temple when they have 'wishes' to be fulfilled. Whenever you have a wish, you do 11 pradakshinas (rounds) around the temple, and see the idol with "Eyes Open"; say your prayer, say your wish, take oath to return & do 108 pradakshinas once your 'wish' is fulfilled. That's the custom here for pilgrims. Very popular for... More

Many Hindus believe that every problems gets solved if we visit this temple. During first visit one need to do 11 rounds with some ambition(S) then if you have reached you need to do 108 rounds. No donations+no VIP darshans+ everyone equal infront of god.
