Osman Sagar, Hyderabad Reviews

  • I think there are multiple entrances here, though I've gone only twice. Eye candy for people who love water bodies, are from coastal areas and miss the sea. We were asked to leave post 6pm by police so would suggest to visit earlier. There is an old fort like thing from where you can take pictures.

  • Very beautiful lake... used to be a source of water supply for the drinking water supply to the entire city, though still being source for some parts of city. Very popular for the sweet taste of the water it has.

  • Just a lake thats it! We can't enjoy the water of it neither can sit beside it. Few parks are there alongside but it is mainly couple business type and fenced with the boundary. So you can enjoy the scenic beauty and peace of the lake. Dam is also there , gate remains closed. It could be made better tourist attraction and maintained.

  • Nice place but very stinky. Seems the water doesnt get cleaned and the whole waste of Hyderabad is dumped in the lake. Though it's a nice place to spend the evening.

  • Early morning run or an evening sunset along the lake, the best place to chill... don't get carried away with weekend rush... Week days should be your preference..
