  • It was a nice experience to take a boat ride to the statue and walk around it. The best time is in the evening when it is dark and the statue lights up in different colors.

  • You get to have a ferry ride, and look around the Hyderbad city lake view. You can go for it if you have enough time in your itinerary.

  • One of the best tourist place in Hyderabad(Telangana). It is present at a walk-in distance of half km right from the Birla mandir. Hussain sagar lake has Buddha's statue exactly in the center of the lake. This 72 feet and 450 tons of statue is built by Hazrat Hussain Shah Wali in a single stone. There is no entry fee but you need to pay only for boating alone. Mechanised Boat Fare: Rs.55 per Adult & Rs.35 per Child Jet Ski ( No Alighting at Buddha Statue ): Rs 250 for 1 person & Rs.300 for 2 persons Rajahamsa ( No Alighting at Buddha Statue ): Rs 100 per person (minimum 5 persons) Para Sailing: Rs.400 per person. Best time to visit this place: from Sunset and till 8 pm. You can hangout with your friends and family. Many options available for eating as well. You can go for a walk in the morning and evening on the renovated Tank bund road to enjoy the view.
  • I would recommend visiting this place when sun is low, because the lighting at the statue of budhha is mesmerizing... And when sun totally sets down then the street lightining view is wonderful . You can do boating or can take boat to go near the statue which is in the centre of the lake..
  • Good place to explore, but poor maintenance
  • The Hussain sagar lake is inbetween the cities of Hyderabad with Secunderabad. It contains the popular Gautam Buddha statue in the middle and is one of Hyderabad's most popular tourist attractions. This statue is said to be one of the world's largest statues. Hussain Sagar offers a spectacular view of Lake, a view of the city, which draws many visitors to the area. It's most impressive at night when the statue's lights are turned on. Tankbund road on hussain sagar lake is good for morning walkers, senior citizens to spend time in the morning hours. In the evening families visit the tank bund with their kids and spend time in the lawns of the tank bund , have snacks and enjoy the view of Hussain Sagar lake. Tank Bund has been a major tourist destination as well as a popular local attraction after recent beautification by the Government. This is a popular spot for people who want to unwind.
  • It looks very nice in evening time with beautiful colour light and travelling in boat. I enjoyed
