GANDIPET LAKE
 

 

 

Located at a distance of 20 km. from Hyderabad, this lake is also called as Osman Sagar. It was constructed by Mir Osman Ali Khan, the Vii Nizam of Hyderabad after the disastrous floods of 1908 by constructing a dam across river Musi. The lake was planned by Mokshagundam Visweswarayya for supplying water to the city of Hyderabad.

The lake is spread over an area of 46 square kilometers. It has well laid out lush green gardens and a swimming pool. It is a very popular picnic spot for the city crowd. 

Gandipet area is synomous with the several reservoirs constructed by Nizam Osman Ali Khan. Besides tapping these fresh water lakes for water, parks were built around them for people to come and enjoy the lakeside views. Today the place is a great stress buster from the rigours of urban Hyderabad.
