  • Great temple. Gives you the feel that you are in South India. Very well maintained and clean. The best part is the food served there. It is not only cheap but also very tasty, especially the tamarind....  more

  • The temple is management works great. It’s maintained clean and hygienic. The architecture is good and well maintained. All kinds of ritual activities are performed but there is still a lot of scope to improvise in aspects like aksharabhyasam and First hair offerings. People drive for hours with infants and kids to this temple to perform rituals but if the priest who does these is so casual and not that up to the mark then it really hurts us. I don’t say it’s bad but there is a lot for improvement only in this aspect. All other services all performed excellent to the standards. Even though the cafeteria is small in size, the food that’s served there is of top quality. The parking at the temple is well organized. Security is good.
  • A must visit temple of Lord Balaji. A beautifully located temple on a hill. Masks are mandatory to enter the temple. Archana tickets costs 8 US dollars and can be purchased at the kiosks located near the reception. You also have the option to buy food like Curd rice, Pulihora rice and others at $3 each box.
