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.

  • It's amazing to see this beautiful statue built in the centre of the lake. The changing lights in night time make it a must to visit place in your Hyderabad trip.

  • Visit to Buddha statue in the middle of Hussain Sagar lake was Ok Ok kind. You can visit once and spend few mts there. The carvings in the front are done meticulously. But looks like the sculptors...

  • A very nice place to spend time with your friends and family. It's in the mid of lake so you can take a boat to reach there . Price for the boats are very pocket friendly For adults- 50/- For kids - 30/- Boat will take you to the statue and you can explore there, when you feel that now you want to ho back take any boat available at that time and you can go back. You can also enjoy lake view from there. I personally like this place. I feel peace there so yeah I'll recommend this place to everyone.
  • Inspired by the Statue of Liberty, it's the tallest statue of Buddha in the world. A quick, affordable boat ride will get you there and back in 45 minutes. Recommended to go near sunset to capture exquisite nighttime views of Birla Temple, government secretariat and other views of Hyderabad.
