Hussain Sagar Lake


Built in the 16th century, Hussain Sagar Lake around 3km from the city center, is the largest artificial lake in Asia that connects the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Also known as Tank Bund, it was built by Ibrahim Qutub Shah in gratitude to Hussain Shah Wali, who had cured him from a disease. A major attraction at the Hussain Sagar is the 16 meter high, 350 tonne monolithic Buddha statue on the Rock of Gibraltar.

The Lake is bordered by four major spans of greenery, Indira Park in the east, Sanjeevaiah Park in the north, Lumbini Park in the south and a green belt stretch squeezed in between the Raj Bhavan road and the Necklace Road. Hussain Sagar has other attractions for lovers of water sports. The yachting and sailing clubs at the lake are active and the annual regatta draws a good number of sports lovers from all around the country.
