From Street Art To Great Food: Here's How To Spend An Evening At Hussain Sagar

Shreya posted on 18 July
Hyderabad's very own Hussain Sagar Lake is surrounded by a number of tourist destinations and is bustling with activities. It is also a place where you can go for a calming walk or better still, spend an entire evening. We'll tell you how. 

Gawk At Architecture In Birla Mandir

Begin your evening by visiting the Birla Mandir in Khairatabad, which is just 15 minutes from Hussain Sagar. This temple is built on a 280-feet high hill, making it visible from many areas of Hyderabad. Made out of white marble, this temple is nearly 50 years old but is still seen in travel brochures or videos pertaining to Hyderabad tourism. Do note that mobile phones or cameras aren’t allowed into the temple.

Go Boating At Lumbini Park

A perfect place to spend an evening amidst nature, Lumbini Park is adjacent to the Hussain Sagar Lake and has many enjoyable activities like laser show, musical fountain, and boating. They have mechanised boating, speed boating as well as a ferry that takes you to see the magnificent Buddha statue up close. Don't worry for your safety as they give life jackets. So, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Dine At Eat Street

There is an inexplicable happiness in eating by the lake (if you leave the mosquitoes out of it). Eat Street is a favourite among city peeps and visitors who like to devour their food with a lake view. An array of stalls serving everything from chaat and pizza to Mughlai and North Indian cuisine makes it a foodie's paradise. You can choose to sit in the open air, or in the covered section and relish your food. There are a lot of toy rides for children here and it is also a popular choice to celebrate birthday parties.

      Get Drinkies At By The Bay

      When the sun goes down, it is party time. So, hit up By The Bay just above eat street for some drinks. This place is but a little bit of Goa in our own city. It screams coastal vibes from the surf boards, jerseys and lifebuoys hanging on walls, and feels much like a shack. So, get a table al fresco, a pint of beer, and end your evening with a bang.
