Hussain Sagar Lake - Review

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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hyderabad itinerary 2 days.

  • A very good park for picnic and outing. Nice rides also. There are different boats and cruises also available at different ratrs for boating in the lake. Night view is just fantastic. I recommend to visit at night as the lighting is awesome. But the boating closes at 9 o'clock so need to be aware of that. There is shopping, fountain and laser show also. Over all a nice place

  • One of the famous and popular tourist destination in Hyderabad. The place will be crowded during evenings and night. Lot of entertainment and fun activities for children and grown ups are available. You can hire a boat or get the ticket for a wonderful boat ride through the Hussain Sagar. Also have a Laser Show point located close to this which will attract too much crowd.

  • Evening is the best time to go there. Views in the evening is just phenomenal. Indian flag looks beautiful in evening. One thing, cleanliness needed.

  • Nice place for a day outing. Just one suggestion kindly clean the water. At food street it stinks now. And not fun eating there.... kindly update the place. Other then that awesome place. Do visit if you are coming to Hyderabad. This place can't be missed. It should be in your to-dos when you are in Hyderabad.
