Set picturesquely on a plinth in the Hussain Sagar, a lake built by the Qutb Shahs, is one of the world’s largest free-standing Buddha statues. It's an especially magnificent sight when illuminated at night. Hussain Sagar Lake is one of the largest man-made lakes in Asia. It connects the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. A prominent monolith of Lord Buddha is mounted at the centre of the lake.

The Hussain Sagar was created on a stream of the River Musi by Sufi Saint Hussain Shah Wahi in the year 1562, during the rule of Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah. It is a wide artificial lake that holds water perpetually. A massive Buddha statue weighing 350 tonnes stands 16 meter tall in the middle of the Hussain Sagar Lake. The statue is made entirely in white granite.

The Necklace Road is another attraction which outlines the periphery of the Hussain Sagar Lake, enhancing its beauty even more. Standing on the water front at night, one is mesmerised by the glimmering row of lights demarcating the lake that looks like a diamond studded necklace. Other attractions around the lake are the Lumbini Park and the Birla Mandir. The ancient temple of Katta Maisamma, symbolising ‘Goddess of the dam’, is very close to this road and pulls a lot of devotees every year.

  • The only place in Hyderabad where u can go multiple times to chill. Only problem is the water is not clean and it stinks but bearable. Location is good and u can take a halt during night outs. Food stalls are available whole night.
