The Middle Path

‘The Middle Path’ – Shot from Lumbini Park and Hussain Sagar, Hyderabad

An 18-metre high monolithic statue of Gautama Buddha towers from atop a pedestal located in a small island in the middle of the lake. The idea of erecting a giant monolith Buddha statue in the midst of Hussain Sagar lake on the Gibraltar rock was a part of the Buddha Poornima project in 1985. The statue was chiseled out of a white granite rock, weighting 450 tons by 200 sculptors in two years. The statue was erected on 12 April 1992 on a red lotus pedestal.
