Is Chasing Sunsets Your Thing? These Spots In Hyderabad Are Legit Awesome
Moula Ali Hill
Have you ever watched the sunset behind the Buddha Statue? Nope? Oh god, you're missing out. Find yourself during the sunset hour at Tank Bund and take long walks as you watch the sun wash the sky in orange. Not a walking person? No problem, just stand and stare!
Go have a rocking time at Khajaguda Hills, just three kilometres away from Hitech City. Natural rock formations, boulders, and peacocks in the sight are a few things that define the hills. There's a dargah on top, and watching a sunrise or sunset here is not to be missed. It requires a basic trek and lots of photographers go here to practice photography or to perfect those drone photographs.
By The Bottle
As evening sets, By The Bottle is one of the coolest bars to find yourself at. The indoor seating is super noisy, so ditch that and go for the rooftop seating where you can watch the sunset and enjoy your drinks with pocket-friendly starters. With an awesome menu for happy hours where you can score drinks at INR 79 only, it really cannot get better than this.
Mahabodhi Buddha Vihara
One of Hyderabad’s best-kept secrets, Mahabodhi Buddha Vihara is a Buddhist temple and monastery where you can go to meditate for hours together. Transporting you to the streets and monastery of Dharamshala, you can spend quiet time here and watch the sunset because it offers a lovely view of Secunderabad.
No travel tour is complete without a visit to Birla Mandir. Located in Khairatabad, this temple is built on a 280-feet high hill, making it visible from many areas of Hyderabad. This also means that the view from the top is fantastic. Go here on an evening, and come back through the lanes of Adarsh Nagar that sell bangles and fancy jewellery of all kinds.
Do note that mobile phones or cameras aren’t allowed into the temple.
Osman Sagar Lake
Gandipet Lake (also known as Osman Sagar Lake), as we know, is a feast to one's eye in the evenings. Apart from being a photographer's paradise, it's a popular picnic spot, drawing crowds of all ages. So, if you want a lake view picnic, go here.
Qutb Shahi Tombs
Just a couple of kilometres away from the urban concrete jungle lies Qutb Shahi Tombs which are the seven successive generations of the Qutb Shahi dynasty that ruled Hyderabad for about 170 years. Forming a large cluster, these tombs are known for their architectural design and are often frequented by photographers. These tombs are often said to form a golden triangle with Golconda Fort and Taramati Baradari in the same proximity. You've got to be here during the sunset is amazing, and we recommend getting here by 5pm.
