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 »
  • Being an avid architecture/history traveller I have seen a lot sculptures. This one is no special (and this is my opinion).. it's commendable that it's a big statue in the middle of the lake(trying to...  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.😉
  • Only general ferry is available to take tourist from Hussain sagar lake to Buddha statue. So be quick to take a good seat on the ferry and enjoy the view while it take you to the statue. Once at the statue you can spend as much time you want, you can always go back in the next ferry. Statue itself is very big and a marvellous architecture. In the evening this place is very beautiful. At times it becomes very crowded but there is ample space to relax and enjoy.
  • Every time I visit this place, I am in awe as how one visualized the statue in the monolithic rock. Then erection of the statue, hats off to the engineering team. The while visual feel makes me visit the place again and again. Also, whenever I pass by the place, I feel like saluting the artisans. Simply superb !!!
  • An 18-meter high statue of Lord Buddha towers over the lake from atop the Rock of Gibraltar. The statue was chiseled out of a white granite rock, weighing 450 tons. It was carved by 200 sculptors for two years. The statue was transported to Hyderabad. Hussain Sagar lake is a popular spot for sailing but water in the lack is very dirty. You Can't stay here for long time.
  • It's a nice place for family outings. There's a minimal entry of Rs. 20 for adults (Rs. 10 for children). Post that there's a large open area, with some food outlets, fountains etc. There's a ferry ride available for Rs. 55, to the Buddha Statue. You can also opt for private motor boat (slightly more expensive). I felt the place should have more eating outlets. Either way, it's worth a visit if you're in Hyderabad.
