Osman Sagar, also known as Gandipet Lake, is a serene artificial lake that was created during the rule of the last Nizam of Hyderabad. That is why the lake shares his name, Osman Ali Khan. The lake is a popular tourist destination where you can watch beautiful sunsets with your dear ones. Some travel agents offer a private city tour with an evening boat ride at Osman Sagar. It is also an ideal destination for enjoying a day-long picnic with your family and friends. Located about 25 km from the city centre, Osman Sagar surely counts among the top weekend getaways from Hyderabad.
