About Us: Chilkur Balaji Temple
This temple is also popularly known as Visa Temple because many devotees come here with the wish of going abroad. It's customary to go around the temple (known as Pradakshina) eleven times and pray to god for a specific wish. Once this wish comes true, the recipient has to go again and take 108 Pradakshinas. This is one of the few temples in India which does not accept monetary donations. Chilkur balaji temple is one of the most famous temples in Hyderabad area. The nice concept that is implemented in darshan of the lord balaji, is that all people must stand in queue with utmost discipline. There are no VIP passes and there is no Hundi for donations. When people ask for wish from the god here, they have to do 11 pradakshinas and ask their wish with the witness of Lord Anjaneya. When the wish gets fulfilled, they need to do 108 pradakshinas. The 11 pradakshinas have a significant meaning according to the temple priests. When people wish anything from god, mind has to think about only god and one's self i.e 11(1-1) signifies that god takes care of everybody and everybody should understand that. There is a Shiva temple in the complex.
