Hussain Sagar and Buddha Statue.

Hussain Sagar, though called a sagar is just a lake lying in the heart of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. It was  built by Hazrat Hussain Shah Wali in 1562, during the rule of Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah. It was a lake of 24 kilometres built on a tributary of the River Musi to meet the water and irrigation needs of the city. There is a large monolithic statue of the Gautam Buddha in the middle of the lake which was erected in 1992.
