The state takes its cue from its former 1940’s Prime Minister Sir Mirza Ismail, who with great seriousness, attended to the task of broadening roads around the lake and overseeing its safety.  Today, fountains and coloured lights illuminate the water, and multiple bronze statues have added to the glamour of the lake.  It is further enriched by the presence of a large white granite monolithic statue of Gautama Buddha, which took two years to sculpt, and which stands on an island in the centre of the lake.

It must be added that Hyderabad, despite its strong Nawabi culture, also celebrates the diversity of other faiths and cultures in the greater region - Islamic, Hindu, Jain, Buddhist and Christian.
