About Chilkur Balaji Temple, Hyderabad
Located on the banks of Osman Sagar Lake, the Chilkur (Chilkoor) Balaji Temple is a flocked by devotees who believe that their visit here will fast track their application for Visa! On a serious note, visa or not, you are sure to feel the sheer history and spiritual pulse of the place as you walk in to the temple. The place dates back to the 14th century and is one of the few temples in India that does not have a quick line for VIPs- treating every devotee equally.
Legends tell a story of how a devotee who visited Tirupati temple once a year could not do so and dreamed of Lord Venkateshwara who advised him to go to the nearby forest. On doing so, the devotee found a molehill and dug out at idol of Lord Balaji. But the axe he used to dig struck the statue and in no time the whole hill was covered in blood. The man flooded the molehill with milk and a ‘swayambhoo’ (self-made idol) of Lord Balaji with Goddesses Sridevi and Bhoodevi were formed here. The same site is where the temple Chilkoor Balaji Temple was built and even today, thousands of people come here to make a wish.
You will often find devotees taking 11 circumambulations of the inner shrine and coming back here to take another 108 circumambulations after their wish is fulfilled!

The only temple in India famous as VISA GOD! If you applied for USA visa, the chances of getting it on time may increase if we perform a ritual here. Ritual simply requires taking 108 rounds around the temple. This is a belief famous among most of the IT companies in Hyderabad.
Named after fulfilling your wishes. You will feel the vibe of God once you visit there. All the place filled with unfulfilled wishes struggling to be fulfilled 🙏
Chilkur Balaji temple is such a wonderful temple in all the temples I believe! Chilkur Balaji is very powerful God. First you have to do 11 pradakshinas( circling ) by praying him honestly and say if your wish fulfill you would do 108 pradakshinas! Then definitely what ever you asked it will get done. Amazing God Chilkur Balaji. I am writing this by my own experience. And there is Lord Shiva also.
During rain the entrance person's selectively allow vehicles to go inside. They do not accept any money nor do they force. It will be crowded temple. It clearly instructs concentrate on your connection with the almighty and not on counting the number of rounds completed. It is a nice temple.
Historic devotee place. Very nice place. All the wishes are listened by god. Avoid weekends.
