Buddha Statue, Hyderabad

(700+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.

  • The best part of Hyderabad Lake is the Buddha statue. One cant skip it if visiting Hyderabad. The best time to visit is in late evening hours. Enjoy a walk along with Ice-cream scoop. Would recommend only after sunset to witness the beautiful and magnificent statue. The is boat service for Rs. 55/- per person every 10 minutes, to the statue from Lumbini Park. Click pictures and enjoy the breeze is what you can do at the statue. The whole visit takes approx 30-45 minutes.
  • Tall and big statute of buddha is the main attraction of Husain sagar lake .and boating is available from lumbini park to the statue
  • This is an icon for Hyderabad, situated at the center of Hussain Sagar lake. It is made up of a single rock, taken from Rayagiri near Bonagiri appr 40 km from Hyderabad.
  • A quick trip to the island was ok. Nice to see it up close on my last trip instead of at a distance while driving by.
  • Before there was the Buddha, there were a series of rocks here called the "Three Sisters". When I was younger, I sailed around these rocks plenty of times. Over the decade-long process of constructing the Buddha, I remember it's slow conversion. One point the statue collapsed and sunk to the bottom of the lake where it remained for quite some time before they managed to salvage it. Honestly, I am indifferent towards it. I've sailed to the monolith, walked around, but this was way back when people didn't mind. I doubt you would be able to do that now.
