About Lotus Pond

voted as clean

Hidden deep within Banjara Hills lies the simple idyllic beauty of the Lotus Pond. The Pond was initially conceived as an Eco-conservation project. The natural elements of the rock structures and the pond have been conserved and the landscaping has been aesthetically weaved around it to fashion it into a breathtakingly beautiful oasis in a concrete desert.

The self sustaining ecosystem plays host to a variety of species of birds. The shimmering Pond is filled with fish. Dip your hand into the cool waters and you can almost catch a slippery fish.

The environs of the pond are a walker’s delight. The undulating and sometimes uneven track makes for a grueling work-out for early morning joggers. Quaint little thatched huts with wooden benches have been strategically placed for the Tired and the Weary. The Pond and its natural environs are a veritable treat for photography enthusiasts. Shutter-bugs will have a field day here shooting away at birds of different feathers that flock here.

"Perfect place for Photoshoot"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Oct 29, 2015
The Lotus Pond is situated in the heart of city, Banjara Hills. It is a park with the pond in the middle of the place and the timing of the park is 06:00 AM to 10:00 AM and 4:00PM to 6:30PM. The major purpose of the park is for walking and relaxation purpose. As the park covers totally greenery so it suits for the photo shoot.

Not recommended much. Most of the time park is closed. Restricted area because of frequent MLA's and Ministers pass the way.

"A much visit place in Hyderabad"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jul 29, 2014
A lovely lake ensconced by lush greenery. A must visit place to contemplate at peace about the greater things in life. I found the place was very well maintained although the mosquitoes are a bit troublesome. But the ambiance makes up for everything.

"Best for evening strolls"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Apr 5, 2014
This is right in the middle of Hyderabad's posh area called Juiblee hills in MLA colony. It is a small lake where we go for morning walk or evening stroll. It is very well maintained and clean water. You can see many fishes and varies small mid size birds. There is a parking area outside just park your car or bike and go for lovely stroll. I mostly enjoy going there in the evening time. Area is surrounded by some of the best looking bungalows of Hyderabad.
