Chilkur Balaji Temple, Hyderabad

4.6
Admire the millennium-old details of Chilkur Balaji Temple, a place of worship devoted to Venkateswara, a form of the Hindu god Vishnu. Also known as the "visa god," Venkateswara draws devotees praying to gain a visa to visit the United States. If their initial 11 rounds around the temple yield success, worshippers must perform another 97 circumambulations in thanks. The temple represents one of the few in the country that doesn't accept any money from devotees, and has no privileged access.

  • Interesting temple on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Frequented by many worshipers but no information for tourists provided. There are many vendors outside the temple selling coconuts and offering shoe deposit services. Also one or two religious men are loitering the area offering their fortune telling abilities. The coconuts are split inside the temple by a priest. Also worshipers are walking around the inside shrine (100 times) as a sign of worship. Outside the temple street vendors are selling fresh fruits. Deposit boxes for camera, cell phone and bags are offered for a minimal price inside the temple.
  • It's a serene place that embodies simple worship. Stronger The belief! Stronger is the benefit! This pilgrim have different customs & for all history about the place( the temple distributes the book about it's origin& it's effort to remain outside govt control), mode of taking payments is by your donation. This donation is accepted by providing you copies of spiritual monthly volume. (published from support of donation.) You can distribute the copies for your near & dear. For all to acknowledge & support the cause.

  • One of the greatest temple in India. Famous for visa. Popularly known as VISA God. Always crowded. Here most people will do 108 Rounds. Saturday & Sunday always busy. Priest will teach you nice lessons. Must visit place. Located in Hyderabad Outscuts.
  • Great temple to visit and pray, and here there id no donation box, no one comes between your devotion and God. When you visit you have a calm, peace of mind, the place is well maintained, that is just the temple premises. It would be better if outside is also maintained well. Its well connected by buses and cabs and there is parking for private vehicles also.
