This temple is located in Chilkur village about 1 hour from Hyderabad city. As you enter the village the stress arelined with different small temples. Typically Tulsi Mala and coconuts are offered to lord Balaji here. You can also light divas in small earthen pots. We visited on Kartik Ekadashi. The entire experience of doing 'Pradakshina' while a priest chanted holy mantras was truly devine and delightful.

Chilkur Balaji Temple is popularly known as "Visa Balaji Temple''.
It is an ancient Hindu temple of Lord Balaji on the banks of Osman Sagar in Ranga Reddy District.
This temple became popular recently as “Visa Balaji Temple” as it is believed that the devotees who pray in this temple will be successful in securing VISA for overseas.
Once the prayers are fulfilled (which happens normally within one year) the devotee has to visit here once again for the thanksgiving ritual (i.e. circling the temple 108 times). The main deity is BALAJI which is very beautiful and powerful. It is worthy to note that there is no VIP line for darshan here. All devotees will have to follow same que. Hence in spite of the huge crowd the line moves faster and the darshan could be completed in half an hour.
There is a beautiful shiv-Linga just outside the main deity temple. One should not miss it. It looks gigantic and powerful.
Overall, it is a must visit temple in the outskirts of Hyderabad.

Chilkur Balaji Temple, popularly known as "Visa Balaji Temple'', is an ancient Hindu temple of Lord Balaji on the banks of Osman Sagar in Rangareddy District. It is one of the oldest temples in Hyderabad. There are many devotees, so it is usual to queue, see the deity and move on. There is a small bazaar in the temple grounds selling religious items and the usual tack. Well worth a visit to get away from the big city. Ola cabs provide 2,4 and 6 hour packages - 4 hours will probably cover a lengthy visit (travel time up to 1 hour each way) or you can catch a city bus.

I am giving 5 stars because before I went here I did not know it is known as Visa Balaji. We just visited there as our friend was visiting this place. And there is a belief if you want to work abroad you should visit this temple and pray then your wish will be fulfilled. Surprisingly soon after visiting this place my husband got a project in USA and we went to USA.
Should definitely visit this place again and offer our 108 pradakshine now. Going around the temple 108 times.

It is very calm place and devotees can concentrate on prayer. In the evening and night it looks very beautiful. View of Hussain Sagar Lake will attract you too much.

Chilkur Balaji Temple is one of the oldest Temple in Raga Reddy district which is located on the bank of Osman Sagar Lake. This temple was built during the time of Akanna and Madanna.

This temple become popular at starting of 21 Century as Visa Balaji Temple. Apparently this temple is known for fulfilling devotee's wishes to get a Visa for going overseas. it is believed that almost all professionals who visit the temple had received an opportunity to fly abroad within a year.

This temple specialty:
1. You will not find any Hundi in this temple and also not accepts Money from Devotees.
2. There is no separate VIP line here. All people from poor to Rich and also CM to PM every one has to come in single line
3. This temple is out of Government control. Temple Trusty fought against government and won to stay out of Government control.
4. During Devotees first visit they will take 11 rounds (Pradakshinas) around the Inner shrine temple, and Makes a Vow(Prayer). Once the wish is fulfilled devotees take 108 rounds(Pradakshinas) around the same inner shrine temple to show their gratitude and thank the God. It is believed that your prayer's will fulfill here if you vow sincerely.

Temple Timings:
Morning 05:00 am to Evening 08:00 pm (all days)
