Chilkur Balaji Temple is located at Chilkur in Moinabad mandal in the Ranga Reddy district, Andhra Pradesh, India. One of the famous temples in Andhra Pradesh, the Balaji Temple is believed by many that those who visit the temple will get their desires fulfilled. Unlike any other temple, there will be no hundi in the temples. This is one of the few temples in India which does not accept monetary donations.
This temple is also popularly known as "Visa Temple" because many devotees come here with the wish of going abroad.
Its 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 Pradakshina.
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 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 realized, 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 ones 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.
