Chilkur Balaji Temple VAK Book

Chilkur Balaji Temple, also known as Visa Balaji Temple, is an ancient Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Venkateswara, located on the banks of Osman Sagar in Rangareddy District, Telangana. The temple is famous for its unique tradition of devotees making 11 and 108 circumambulations around the sanctum sanctorum to fulfill their wishes, especially related to visa and travel. The temple is also one of the few temples in India that does not accept any money or donations from the devotees and does not have any privileges for VIPs.

VAK, which stands for Voice of Temples, is a monthly magazine run by the trustee of Chilkur Balaji Temple, Dr. M.V. Soundararajan, and his son, R. Renganathan. The magazine was launched in 2009 with the aim of spreading awareness about the heritage and culture of Hindu temples and fighting for the rights and welfare of temple priests. The magazine also covers various topics related to spirituality, astrology, epigraphy, archaeology, history, art, architecture, and conservation. The magazine has a circulation of about 50,000 copies and is distributed across India and abroad.
