The Chilkur Balaji Temple in Hyderabad holds immense religious significance. Located right beside the Osman Sagar Lake, this 500-year-old shrine is dedicated to Lord Balaji Venkateswara. The temple is considered an alternative shrine to the world-renowned Tirumala temple. This temple is also called the Visa Balaji Temple, given the widespread belief that a visit to this temple ensures visa clearance. Another exciting feature of the Chilkur Balaji temple is that it is the only temple in India that does not accept offerings for money making it one of the unique places to explore in Hyderabad.
