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. Make Chilkur Balaji Temple part of your personalized Hyderabad itinerary using our Hyderabad route planner.

  • The peaceful place filled with divinity. God Balaji is famously know here as visa good as people believe that their visa gets approved after visiting this temple. The god also known as good of pradkshin as people do 108 rounds . It is recommended to visit the place during week days and in the early hours in weekends as there will be heavy crowd during weekends after 8 .
  • My relationship with this temple dates back to 2013. It is safe to say that, every single time my prayers were answered. One factor which distinguishes this temple is the absence of "Hundi". People spend at least an hour here. Weekdays are the best time to visit, both early in the morning and evenings. I strongly suggest visitors coming from long distances not to plan your visit on SATURDAYS and Sundays, as these are the days more people throng to the temple.
