Buddha Statue, Hyderabad

4.1
Considered by some India's answer to the Statue of Liberty, Buddha Statue remains the world's tallest sculpture of Gautama Buddha. Hundreds of laborers carved this Buddha out of a single piece of solid white granite, which stands 18 m (58 ft) tall at the heart of Hussain Sagar Island. Take the regular ferry service to the island and stroll through Lumbini Park to fully appreciate this spectacular landmark and cultural symbol.

  • We took a boat ride to get to this place. It is a nice statue, looks good from far as well as from close. The lake is good too but a little smelly.  more »

  • The park is quite good, I would appreciate more lights. The 3d show is also a very good attraction. The lake is not cleaned regularly so it's smell stinks. The boat fares for the lake are a bit pricey.The Buddha statue is magnificent with both architecture and Divine beauty. A good place to take some pictures

  • The Buddha Statue is located in centre of the Hussainsagar Lake in the city. It is a amazing tourist attraction for the people in the city. You only reach the statue via boat or ship that takes you there, the cost of the same is not very high. You can reach the statue and return by via the ships or boat which are very frequently available. You will also find beautiful engravings below the statue. Also you must visit the statue during sunset for best experience, you will be able to see the beautiful lighting after sunset. The food is not so tasty here, you can easily eat at any restaurant near the area.
  • The best time go is during the weekday if you don’t like crowds and waiting in lines. I went on a Monday afternoon and it was really peaceful. It’s really amazing to watch the statue from so close. The boat ride to the statue would cost around 50 to 55 rupees
  • Great feeling to go near India's largest standing Buddha's statue !! Nothing much to do there except to enjoy the view.. Best time is after the sunset, where the statue is lit up with lights.. And do get a picture from any of the photographers there.. value for money!
