Have visited this temple several times now. Everytime I go, it feels so peaceful here. Devotees perform parikramas once they have made a wish and also if it is fulfilled. Around the temple there is also a lot of shops where you get artificial jewellery, nice statues of gods and also kids toys.

No doubt temple is far away from the Hyderabad city but I believe if you have faith in God Venkateswara then you can manage the distance. From Hyderabad Citi you can easily get the Ola and Uber Cab to go there but in the return you may face some difficulty to get return cab. Internet is not working there so... More

Chilkur Balaji is known more as Visa Balaji. As the wish of Visa's gets fulfilled after pray to the Lord. Very peaceful and calm place. Do not visit on Tuesday, Sunday and Saturdays as there will be more rush.

The temple is known as Visa temple. It is Lord Balaji temple. Must visit for people visiting Hyderabad and residents of Hyderabad if they have faith in Lord Balaji. Feel peaceful to visit this temple each time.
