  • A very good park for picnic and outing. Nice rides also. There are different boats and cruises also available at different ratrs for boating in the lake. Night view is just fantastic. I recommend to visit at night as the lighting is awesome. But the boating closes at 9 o'clock so need to be aware of that. There is shopping, fountain and laser show also. Over all a nice place
  • Awesome place as the heart of Hyderabad. The place is good and nice to see once and spend some time with your family. Better to visit the place in evening to enjoy the light show. The Buddha statue is very good man made statue.
  • Lake is too dirty.. boat riding is available.. surely u will have nice riding experience.. and buddha statue is really amazing.. I think its a very big lake at the centre of the city, looking amazing but please keep the lake clean

  • One of the famous and popular tourist destination in Hyderabad. The place will be crowded during evenings and night. Lot of entertainment and fun activities for children and grown ups are available. You can hire a boat or get the ticket for a wonderful boat ride through the Hussain Sagar. Also have a Laser Show point located close to this which will attract too much crowd.
