The temple is one of the oldest in Telangana, having been built during the time of Akkanna and Madanna, the uncles of

Bhakta Ramdas. According to tradition, a devotee who used to visit Tirupati every year could not do so on one occasion

owing to serious ill health. Lord Venkateshwara appeared in his dream and said, "I am right here in the jungle nearby.

You don't have to worry." The devotee at once moved to the place indicated by the Lord in the dream and saw a molehill

there, which he dug up. Accidentally, the axe struck Lord Balaji's idol (covered by the molehill) below the chin and on the

chest. Surprisingly blood started flowing profusely from the "wounds", flooding the ground and turning it scarlet. The

devotee could not believe his eyes. He could not believe his ears when he heard a voice from the air saying, "Flood the

molehill with cow's milk." When the devotee did so, a Swayambhu idol of Lord Balaji accompanied by Sridevi and

Bhoodevi (a rare combination) was found, and this idol was installed with the due rites and a temple built for it.

Sri Balaji Venkateshwara, the Pratyaksha Daiva in Kaliyuga, is thus available at Chilkur to shower blessings on His

devotees who for any reason are unable to go to Tirupati. Many devout worshippers flock to the temple to receive the

blessings of the Lord and his consorts throughout the year particularly during Poolangi, Annakota and


With the earnest desire to revive the former glory and importance of the temple, the idol of Ammavaru was installed in

1963, the year after the Sino-Indian War. After the unilateral withdrawal of Chinese troops, Ammavaru was given the

name of Rajya Lakshmi, signifying this welcome event. The unique feature of this idol is that lotus flowers are held in

three hands and the fourth hand is in a position towards the lotus feet which signifies the doctrine of Saranagathi.

The temple has been visited by great Acharyas from time to time. A visit to the temple is a must for the Jeer of Sri Ahobila

Mutt every time he visits the twin cities, and in the temple is installed the idol of the first Jeer. The Tilakayaths of Sri

Vallabhacharya Sampradaya have been regularly visiting the shrine. Jagadguru Sri Sankaracharya of Sringeri Mutt and

his disciple graced the efforts of the trustees in improving the temple.
