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.

    Garbage Smell like hell. Lake water is totally polluted. Everytime boat get stuck because of garbage in it. Dirtiest place i have ever been in my life. Even Buddha can't breathe there.  more »

    The statue in the middle lake is special (different), but I wouldn't call it too spectacular. Boat ride there is either a big tour boat (which will let you disembark on the island), or you can go arou...  more »

    Very cute boat trip to the statue. In General, and the General plan for two hours-you need first to get into the Park, inside the Park to buy a ticket for the boat to defend the queue at the wharf. In order to go back, we must again defend in the queue. Overall, interesting-a huge statue of the middle of the Lake, don't forget to take photos. When you buy a ticket on the spoon, then say you to the Buddha-there there are other tours on smaller boats. Price-20rs (Lumbini Park) + 50rs (ticket for the boat).

    Visited during sunset. Soothing experience after travelling through busy traffic. Boat ride is worth, both to enjoy the lake and to see the statue up close. There is a laser show as well, which I missed because of reaching there late.

    One of the tourist spots in Hyderabad. A must visit one. Sunset seems to look good. Boating experience, lights in the evening adds up. Only bad thing water smells awkward.

    The place is beautiful at night with all the lighting and laser show. The huge statue with a small garden-like surrounding, on the sole island is a must-see for everyone. Boat services are available too. Great place for a family or friends' outing.

    Thia is one of the place in Hyderabad to visit.No need to say while we travel through a boat to any place.That sailing wind and the moving water does something actually. You can take a motor boat which is cheap and good by the way. The statue is placed at centre to the lake and the statue is huge and you will be stunned for sure.I visited at afternoon so my experience was not that good so I suggest to visit at evening time where it will be better with light effects and for taking photos :D
