Recently someone told us about Lotus pond, a small lake surrounded by a paved walkway, tucked away in residential Banjara Hills area. We tried visiting the pond couple of times but one time we were too early and other time too late.
Yesterday, we managed to visit the pond.
Varun stayed at home with his grandma allowing us to take in a leisurely walk around its perimeter. They have made use of the ponds natural terrain, trees and rocks in creating a low maintenance green space around it.
We even saw fishes, birds and dragonflies.
It’s actually very tranquil in spite of the houses and apartments surrounding it in all directions.
As the park opens early, the neighbours probably get to enjoy it more than anyone else. And to live with such views from their apartment is pure luxury in this city!
Flowers bobbed in the cool breeze, purple fountain grass swayed, all in all very soothing.
If you are in the neighborhood and are looking to get away from it all, this is perfect. Though keep an eye on the timings ( 6:00 am – 10:00 am in the mornings, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm in the evenings) – the security guards are very meticulous about it.
