Photographer's Note

The Buddha statue is a monolith located in Hyderabad. On December 1st 1992, the statue was installed on the platform successfully. It is the world's tallest monolith of Gautama Buddha (18 m and weighed 350 tons), erected in the middle of Hussain Sagar. A concrete platform measuring 4.6 m, now referred to as the "rock of Gibraltar", was constructed in the middle of the artificial lake to aid in erecting the statue. This statue can be reached by boat in 15 minutes from Lumbini park. The statue is near to Lakdi-Ka-Pul, Khairatabad and Assembly Hyderabad metro stations. In 2006, the Dalai Lama consecrated the statue after performing a ritual. Source : wiki
