Visa Balaji Temple in 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 Hyderabad. A lot of young people throng this famous temple more to secure their respective student/work visas than for true devotion.

But for people who want to visit the Lord for the real reason i.e. to seek his true blessings and see him in his magnificent form, it's a truly a wonderful temple.

"Awesome temple . Go with 100% Belief in Lord Balaji and follow the procedure, you will get to know the good news soon. You can offer the items required for the temple, not money. Things such as Milk ( Tetra pack),Peanuts, Chikpees, Saffron, Urad dal, Oil,Any dal etc can be given in the temple. They use it for the God as part of Prasadam, other requirements. The archana is offered twice to the lord every day. Once in Morning and in evening ( 6.30 PM). After darshan, devotees are allowed to go to the nearest darshan ( the Room next to the lord). On Friday special pooja is performed and Haldi ( Turmeric) used in the puja is given to the women devotee in evening. I my self have been to that temple lot of times. If you believe 100% in him, then your wish ( realistic) will come true . Couple of examples for my case: 1. Got an offer which was on hold for over 1 month in just 1 hours after the visit. 2. Got my B1 visa. 3,4. Blessed with two healthy kids. ( Boy first and then a girl)."
