Buddha Statue, Hyderabad

#12 of 294 in Things to do in Hyderabad
Monument · Landmark
Considered by some India's answer to the Statue of Liberty, Buddha Statue remains the world's tallest sculpture of Gautama Buddha. Hundreds of laborers carved this Buddha out of a single piece of solid white granite, which stands 18 m (58 ft) tall at the heart of Hussain Sagar Island. Take the regular ferry service to the island and stroll through Lumbini Park to fully appreciate this spectacular landmark and cultural symbol.

  • Absolutely amazing... But the best time to visit is November to jan... In march it starts to get hot and humid.. Better to visit in early morning or just after sunset  more »
  • The place is very famous for Buddha statue and the water lake. Usually this palce is highly crowded and its advised to plan accordingly  more »
  • How should I describe this one... If you miss it you will not miss it... If you are in the area no harm in taking a ferry and going there... But if going there go in the evening with the lights and all things will look better... Beside is NTR park try that also... Then my be you can go for dinner in Paradise nearby and then call it a day
  • This place is located in the center of the city. One of the must go places if you are in Hyderabad. I visited with my family & friends multiple times. Things to do 1. boat ride (speed boat) 2. Boat ride to the Buddha statue 3. visit NTR Garden main attraction is laser show on fountain. Its a very good place to spend a day with family. There is so much to see.... recommend to visit once. Thanks!
