  BUDDHA PURNIMA TOUR  
Double decker vintage coach Cool breeze blowing across the lake and changing colours with the setting sun make the surroundings of Hussain Sagar Lake, a fascinating hangout place in the evenings both for the youngsters as well as the aged. There was a time when people used to spend their leisure evenings on the Tank Bund Road only. Bur now the choice has widened with the addition of Lumbinipark, NTR Gardens and Necklace Road. It is difficult to cover all these places unless ofcourse if you have your own vehicle. The tourism department has come out with a vintage coach that will take you along the Hussain Sagar lake.

During this journey one can take a thrilling boat ride and admire the majestic statue of Lord Buddha from any of the three jetty points - Lumbinipark, People's Plaza at Necklace Road and Sanjeevaiah park.
