Hussain Sagar | Best Sight seeing place in Hyderabad | Telangana Tourism
Hussain Sagar is a lake in Hyderabad built by Hazrat Hussain Shah Wali in 1562, during the rule of Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah. It is spread across an area of 5.7 square kilometers and is fed by River Musi. Hussain Sagar Lake with a 3 km long dam wall is the largest artificial lake in Asia that connects the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Situated around 3km from the Hyderabad city center
A musical fountain adds to the beauty of the Lumbini Park which encircles the lake on one side. On the other side of the lake is the majestic Birla Mandir sculpted on an elevation. The entrance is marked by a white arch with two lions standing beside the pillars on each side, showcasing the traditional Hindu temple design. The monolithic statue of Lord Buddha, made up of granite, stands tall at a height of 16 meters. The sparkling row of lights that outline the lake give the impression of a “diamond studded necklace” at night. You can witness this blissful sight standing at the Tank Bund road which has well laid foot-paths and benches.
