Temples in Chilkur

Chilkur Temples

Chilkur village was established nearly 1500 years ago. The village is in Ranga district of Telangana, India.  The popular Chilkur Balaji Temple is situated about 30 Km away from Hyderabad. It is also known as Visa Balaji Temple, one of the oldest temples in Hyderabad District. The only temple in India which has continued to stay out of government control and does not accept any donations from its devotees. It is also believed in an incident when a few students who had their Visa applications rejected, came and prayed here only to have their applications accepted that's why it is also known as Visa God or Visa Balaji.
