The Osman Sagar was developed as a summer recluse for the Nizam but also served the purposes of a water reservoir during dry spells. It also protected Hyderabad against the great flooding of river Musi in the year 1908. The river Musi does not flow with its past glory now and its falling levels are a sign of concern for the city of Hyderabad which so badly depends on it for its drinking water needs.
We booked the Osman Sagar Resort way in advance because the resort does not have a large number of rooms and is occupied and pre-booked for most parts of the year. It is thus essential to book it is advance, so that you can have a comfortable stay. The best booking time is during the winters because the rush is the least. Also you can witness a drop in prices then. The stay at Osman Sagar Summer Resort is a budget deal if you do so with friends. The rooms do not cost much but the services are impeccable.
The scenic beauty around the Osman Sagar is just outpouring. This was the reason that even Nizams could not resist coming back to this place again and again during the summer heat of Hyderabad. The Osman Sagar is quickly becoming a major tourist attraction in the region.
