The Hussain Sagar Lake Is One Of Hyderabad's Most Popular Tourist Attraction. It Is Crowned As India's Largest Artificial Lake. It Is Believed That Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah Built This Lake In The Year 1563. What Adds To The Awesomeness Of This Scenic Lake Is The Monolith Of Lord Buddha, Standing Gigantically Tall In The Heart Of The Lake. This Lake Is Also Responsible To Connect The Twin Cities Of Hyderabad & Secunderabad!

"A nice garden and boating trip."

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Mar 22, 2017
The lake is big and worth spending an evening in the garden with boat club. There is choice of boats that take you to the Buddha statue island inside the lake. Speed boats do not allow to alight at the island but other boats give you approx. 10 to 15 minutes, enough for going around and clicking pictures. The boat ride is a nice experience and the best time is just half an hour before sunset. The boat ride costs Rs 55 per person.

About Hussain sagar Lake

58%
voted as clean

Hussain Sagar Lake is one of the popular landmarks and important tourist destinations in the city of Hyderabad. Hussain Sagar Lake, situated about 2 km from the heart of the city of Hyderabad, connects Secunderabad to Hyderabad.

Hussain Sagar Lake of Hyderabad is the largest artificial lake in Asia. This lake was excavated during the reign of Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah by Hussain Shah Wali in 1562 AD. Hussain Sagar Lake, built on the tributary of the River Musi, had been of significance in the early days since it connected the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.  

Hussain Sagar Lake has become a major recreational as well as picnic spot. The lake is bordered by Indira Park in the east, Sanjeevaiah Park in the north and Lumbini Park in the south.

Towards the middle of the lake, there is a huge monolithic statue of Lord Buddha in white granite standing on the ‘Rock of Gibraltar’. This statue of Buddha is about 16 meters high and weighs about 350 tonnes.

Hussain Sagar Lake has become a prominent centre for water sports. Boating facilities like speed boats, motor boats, etc. are provided at this lake. A 48-seater launch is another added attraction of this lake, on which dinner and private parties can be arranged.

The state tourism board of Andhra Pradesh organises water sports competition at Hussain Sagar Lake which range from boating and cruising to water-skiing and para sailing.
