  • Best tourist places in Hyderabad. A must visit place. Snacks available near the monument... Reach the place by a ferry... Good and cheap tickets rates. Best time to go would be in the evenings as the light show on the statue making it change colours will be once in a lifetime sight...
  • One of the most popular locations of Hyderabad to hangout. It has been improving for good and the efforts of government are evident. But littering seems to be a menace. Government should focus on dustbins and make it sure littering invites serious penalty, that's the only solution. Apart from that it's totally fine.
  • The place is good and nice to see once and spend some time with your family. Do take a boat ride. It does not allow food inside the garden or lake. The lazer and fountain show was cool, one time watch ( nothing great if have to catch up with something more amazing and have already watched a few earlier) the show is in the evening.
  • It is one of the main tourist attractions in Hyderabad. It is a big and Charming lake in the heart of the city. There is a big statue of Lord Buddha constructed on an island in the lake. Tourists can reach this island by boats, regular boats are available. There is a lush green park at the entrance, many eateries and small restaurants are available. Overall a must visit place and meant for whole family.
  • Surrounding atmosphere in evening and night times is pleasant even you visit many times but again the weather pulls to visit here. Thats why it is much popular place in the city as we don't have beach but some what feels like cool and relaxing here beside necklace road park very good for families.
