Lumbini Park is one of the beautiful parks in the twin cities
Hyderabad and Secunderabad located along the banks of Hussain Sagar
Lake. Lumbini Park is a part of the Buddha Poornima project
developed by the Hyderabad Urban Development Authority in 1994 and
since then, it has become an ideal place of relaxation and a place
of amusement. The park has been named after the garden that was the
birth place of Siddharth, the later day Buddha. It is a hit with
kids and families and has several attractions that could lure you to
spend an evening away from home, with your family.
The main attractions of the park include a colourful floral clock,
waterfalls and fountains. The spectacular musical dancing fountain
and water cascade draws huge crowds. Normally, during summer time,
three shows are organised. However, due to the upgradation work
being taken up by the Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (HUDA),
currently the musical fountain show and the clock has been put off
temporarily. In this park every day organize a musical fountain show
at 6.30 evening. The fountains dance to the tunes of popular numbers
from Hindi and Telugu film songs. This is one of the must see sight
and almost the park is crowded with visitors and picnickers.
The Lumbini park is surrounded by the state Secretariat, the
Hussain Sagar lake and the exotic Birla Mandir.
