  • When I visited it for the 3rd time I've observed that the Lord Venkateshwara Idol was not decorated properly. Hope The Idol Will be Decorated with much more Beautiful Flowers Always and everyday. When we see The Lord Our eyes And Heart should Feel His Presence. It'll only Happen if the Lord is decorated With full of Flowers. Hope they consider my suggestion....
  • Beautiful temple made of marble. Well maintained too. Will get the feel of fresh air and peace inside the temple. Electronic gadgets like mobile phones not allowed inside the temple. A must visit temple in Hyderabad. The temple is easily accessible within city limits.
  • Beautiful temple , made of fully white marble. I really appreciate the temple authority for maintaining it well, you have to submit your shoes as well as your all the electronic gadgets here, this service is fully free, but people who use to keep shoes sometimes ask for money, toilet facility is also available here. Its a great place to have internal peace.
  • Beautiful temple. Very pleasant place to be at. Weekends or weekdays, the place is extremely peaceful and filled with a positive vibe. The Lord is also huge and powerful. Parking will be available if one can reach the temple early. Early mornings and evenings feel totally different and one should visit at both times for the experience. Mobile phones and electronics are prohibited in the temple and there is a deposit facility for the same. Shopping enthusiasts have a store with various items available too.
  • A superb temple to come and spend time with your family. The architecture with white marbles is eye-pleasing. The shops outside the temple sell religious books. The area has many temples so you should come here only when you have a lot of time in your hand.
