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.

  • 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
  • Its the best tourist spot to visit... The place seems to be peaceful and enlightens oneself.. A MUST VISIT PLACE
