Hussain Sagar Lake ( September 2011 )
The Hussain Sagar Lake is 24 sq km and was built in 1562 by Hussain Sagar during the rule of Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah. A large statue of Gautam Buddha was erected in it in 1992. The lake was built on the tributary of Musi primarily to serve the irrigation needs in the city. The Lumbini park is a small, urban park which has been constructed next to the lake. Above: some photographs of the lake, statue and the park; all clicked from Lumbini Park itself. Pictures of the lake with a lonely duck, boats, fountains and the statue of Gautam Buddha in it.



More clicks from Lumbini Park: 

There are several beds of Marigolds, hedges with reddish leaves and a lot of palm trees all around the park. There is also a Laser show which is held inside the park. Here are some clicks of the trees and flowers inside the park. The last picture is the view of a temple from the park.
