"Really fulfils the desire"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 31, 2016
I visited this temple for the first time with a myth that the god will fulfil my desire if complete 108 rounds around the temple. At that time I did those rounds with divine in god and then within one month I got Visa to America for job. This temple is located at a distance of 30kms from Hyderabad and the best time to visit the temple is on Monday or at Mahalakshmi puja time. At this time special puja will be done to god in honour to him and heavy crowd will be there. And so I suggest every visitor who wish to have visa visit this temple one time and do pradakshinas you will have your wish fulfilled really friends it is not fake, must visit temple by the visitors.

"Must visit"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Mar 22, 2016
This temple is located just 50kms away from the Hyderabad city and it is famous as a well known called as "Visa God". The myth for the people who visit here is that "who completes 108 rounds" around the temple will get VISA to any country". So that's what the reason the temple will be crowded with the devotees. So it is recommended to "go to this temple during early morning to complete dharshanam". And the temple is maintained very good.

"Clean and fresh ambiance of the Temple"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Jul 23, 2014
It is better visiting temples which are clean and have a good ambiance. I will suggest not to carry heavy baggage. Always travel light and carry your own light snacks.
