Situated at a distance of around 20kms from the main town is the beautiful Himayat Sagar Lake in district of Hyderabad of Andhra Pradesh. A major attraction of this lake which makes it unique among other sacred lakes in the city is its usefulness. Though it is an artificial lake, it still manages to collect water from the nearby rivers and provide water to the city.
Lying parallel to another artificial lake, the renowned Osman Sagar Lake, Himayat Sagar Lake appeals visitors with its picturesque beauty. Built by a Nizam, who decided to name the lake after his youngest son, he put in all his efforts and collected rain water to form this site of unparallel beauty. During summers this place becomes a retreat for tourists, as you can enjoy loud music, indulge in different activities, like peddle boating and enjoy street food. So make sure you include this place in your itinerary during your visit to Hyderabad.
