Hussain Sagar is one of the famous man-made lakes in India. This lake divides the city into two parts Hyderabad and Secunderabad. World’s largest monolithic statue of buddha is installed in the middle of the lake.
I have heard about the charm of sunset at Hussain Sagar Lake. Being a sunset admirer, I wanted to catch the dusk view. So, I dragged my lazy friend to start early at 3 PM. Though she was more fascinated with the night lights of the lake so she wanted to start later. :P
While sitting on the bus we just had a thought …whether we boarded the right bus or not. :/ We were in doubt until I saw that google map navigation marker moving in the direction toward our destination. And off course after asking the bus driver. :P
We reached there by 5 PM and what we saw ??? There was a huge crowd as it was Saturday and that too on Christmas Eve. We had to wait in a long queue to buy our entry tickets to Lumbini Park. The entry fee is nominal. The way to the lake is through Lumbini Park. After security check, we were in the Park.
The Lumbini park is a good spot for those who want a loud fun time with children and Family. This Park has few Swings, Slides and Artificial fountains for children as well as grown up. The Park was full of crowd. Without spending too much time in the park we headed toward the lake.
I couldn’t find the typical drowning sunset view, Maybe we missed it or we were standing in the wrong direction. But, the view of lake, sky and the horizon was mesmerizing. Some ships were standing still on the shore while some were running on the water. I took few snaps and headed toward the boating area.
