Hyderabad is home to its very own Hussain Sagar Lake, located in the middle of several popular tourist attractions and usually buzzing with activity. It is also a spot where you may go for a stroll that will help you relax or spend the whole evening there.

It is widely known as the artificial lake that occupies the biggest area in Asia. Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah commissioned the lake in 1563, and its monolith of Lord Buddha sits exactly in the heart of the lake, making it famous.

Things to do at the Hussain Sagar Lake:

  • Climb up the height of this monolithic construction as it is therecord holder for the category worldwide!

The lake known as Hussain Sagar is often referred to as Tank Bund, and it is located on a tributary of the River Musi. The attraction also has a dam wall three kilometers long and unites the cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad, twin towns.

While standing on the Tank Bund, you can view the entire lake sparkling around you as the lights shine on the beach.

Because of this, the route is often commonly referred to as the 'Necklace Road.'

  • Find calm in the middle of chaos:

Because of its one-of-a-kind configuration in the form of a heart, the Hussain Sagar Lake has been honored with the title 'Heart of the World' by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) (UNWTO).

It is certainly a tranquil and soothing escape from the hustle and bustle of the city surrounded on three sides by parks: Indira Park, Sanjeevaiah Park, and Lumbini Park.

  • Participate in water sports:

The Hussain Sagar Lake is home to several renowned attractions, including boat excursions, water sports, and fish farming; however, the lake's most notable feature is a Buddha statue carved out of a single block of stone and placed smack dab in the middle of the body of water.

Boating: If you want to spend a relaxing and enjoyable evening in the middle of nature, you should go for a boat trip around the lake.

Parasailing: If you want to live on the edge from time to time, you should investigate the many alternatives for engaging in water activities available at the lake.

  • Witness the spectacle of Light and Sound:

Lumbini Park, located close to Hussain Sagar Lake, regularly hosts one of the city's most dazzling light and sound shows. You do not want to pass up the chance to see the breathtaking laser display since it may be an occasion that only comes around once in a lifetime. In addition to the visual stimulation, there will also be accompanying audio, turning the presentation into an activity that is not just enjoyable but also instructive.

  • Street Food

The well-known Eat Street in Hyderabad looks out over the calm waters of Hussain Sagar Lake, known for its picturesque setting.

This location is true to its name and is home to various well-known fast food restaurants, including Pizza Hut, Minerva Coffee Shop, Baskin Robbins, Subway, and McDonald's.

Ohri's counter section is the place to go if you're craving some authentic Indian street food like golgappas, dahi puri, chana bhatura, dahi papdi, pav bhaji, aloo chat, raj kachori, or pani puri.

Other mouthwatering specialties include Hyderabad Biryani, Vegetarian Biryani, Chicken and Mutton Biryani, Rajma Rice, Naan, Roti, coffee, Dosas, Idli, and Uttapams are available here as well.

  • Stroll in the Lumbini Park

The place was given its name after the Buddhist holy city of Lumbini in Nepal, located in that country. This park is well-known for its mesmerizing multimedia fountain, which is also referred to as the musical fountain by both the residents and the visitors that come to the park.
