Visited this place with a friend of mine. Quite different from the temples in the Northern part of India. It's also known as the visa temple apparently.

Chilkur balaji temple is the oldest and powerful temple built during madanna and akkanna period. Temple is also called as Visa balaji temple because many of the people believe that will get visa for sure after visiting the place.

Well connected by Telangala state transport system. I would suggest you to go in early hrs. Open from 7AM. Lots of Lodges and Restaurants which serves cheap and best Telugu... More

Had an excellent despite of heavy rush. spent good 5 hours in the temple. Good thing is the priests of the temple are not after your wallets - probably the only temple in India that doesn't have a hundi. any donations to be made - can be done thru online payment. super peaceful environment.

Around 30 kms from secundereabad, in the outskirts of city, went on a two wheeler to visit Chilkur Balaji or VISA temple. Everybody has to go via queue, no trespassing or bypassing as seen in other temples. No entry fee is there. Autos/Buses are available to reach. On the way, you will find dabhas.
