Chilkur Balaji Temple

Our country is an incredible land, and a home for amazing cultural integration. People in India are briskly embracing technology, but deep inside, they are still rooted to their faith in god. Indians, of all age groups embark on a path of spiritual journey in the name of God and faith. One such temple standing high is the Chilkur Balaji Temple. The amazing deity of this temple is also known as VISA God. This name comes as a surprise for many but some people come to the temple with a belief that Chilkur Balaji is very powerful in helping people secure foreign VISAs.

This temple is located on the outskirts of the state capital, on the banks of the Osman Sagar Lake. The temple is definitely an epicenter of a great deal of spiritual energy. According to the history of this temple, almost all the IT professionals who visit the temple had received an opportunity to fly abroad within a year. The faith here is that if a you make a wish after 11 pradakshanas, then that wish comes true. And once the wish comes true, you will have to come back to do 108 pradakshanas around the entire temple.

Even the popular Wall Street Journal, amused with the belief, has written a full article on this temple. People from all sects visit this temple in hope of getting their wishes fulfilled. Another notable aspect of this temple is that it is one of the very few temples in the country, which does not accept any monetary donations in the Hundi. The management believes that the only fee the lord asks the devotees to make pradakshanas around the temple. It is a matter of sheer pride that our nation holds such rich heritage where beliefs and faiths in good are passed on from one generation to the other with or without any scriptures.
