You may have visited many pilgrim centers, but you will find nothing like this on earth. Even with the fleeting glimpse you catch of Lord Balaji, you would get an immense pleasure and memorable satisfaction. This temple would appear to the only place of major attraction. A feeling of being blessed and graced comes over to you naturally once you are on the territory of Lord Balaji.

The food offered here is generally a humble meal of a pilgrim. You would find amazing shops offering distinct commodities to take back as your traveling souvenir. But apart from the decorative items and the lord idols what you take back is the memory which can never be replaced by any other pilgrimage.
