The temple was constructed on a small hillock near the Hussain sagar lake. Build by birla foundation just like many other in different cities in the country. The temple is constructed with white marble and the temple is dedicated to lord Venkateshwara (Balaji). Apart from the main temple there are also small temples for Lord Shiva, Ganesh, Andal, and Hanuman. Photography restricted inside. No electronic device allowed inside. Unlike some religious places every one is most welcome here. One can click pictures from the parking area only. The parking was a small one so when its crowded better to park the vehicle down on some streets and walk up. The Buddha statue in Hussain sagar lake is visible from the temple.
