Chilkur Balaji Temple - Review

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! Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hyderabad itinerary 2 days.

Chilkur Balaji Temple, Hyderabad Reviews

  • As everyone said a visit to this temple gives you peace of mind. However not everyone can bear the cost of coconuts over there. It's better to get somewhere outside and go.

  • 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.

  • You will get the peace of mind where you can't get anywhere in Hyderabad. Called as "Visa God", people come here to offer 108 rounds around the temple, when their wish come true. Transportation is a easy parameter in this place. You can get direct buses from Mehdipatnam to Chilkur Balaji 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.
