Temple is well maintained.... need to walk uphill close to 500m from car parking to the temple... surrounded by tea estates...
The temple was beautiful earlier, situated amidst tea garden on a hillock with roses and lawn all around. Lot of roses could be seen. No shops, beggars and puja stalls etc. It was a private temple of a tea garden owner having approximately 50000 acres of tea garden around. Recently the garden has been spoiled reportedly by elephant herds. Hence it looks like the temple does not encourage visitors. The 2 km road stretch leading to the temple was very bad, fit for jeeps only. The temple guards have been very strict not allowing anyone between 1200 hrs to 1500 hrs. You do not have parking place now which was there earlier. No benches to sit. Indirectly it looks the temple administration fear that the increased visitors and publicity will give a right of way to public and government may take over or attempt to take over. I advise people to avoid till road is repaired. Try to reach before 1200 hrs and return before dark. The road during monsoon and winter is dangerous. Added to that lot of animals cross the ghat road. There will be umpteen small water falls everywhere during monsoon. However one darshan of lord balaji is enough to rejuvenate you and will again take you back there. I have visited this place about half a dozen time. However this time the condition, attitude and strictness does not encourage visitors. The toilet on top has also been closed to public. The lawn, park and children park have been closed to public and removed. But darshan and puja is different experience.
Nice temple clean and green ambience a divine vibration and one would get a great darshan without partiality like other temples !!
The drive after hair pin bend 40 to this temple was a bit bumpy with roads not that good. But the temple ambience was great. Pujas performed were good. Refreshing.
