Kasu Brahmananda Reddy National Park : A pleasant place for an evening
We had a perfect time spent at the NTR Gardens. The next place that we decided to visit on our Hyderabad visit was another such park which is a very famous and a popular tourist attraction of the city, the Kasu Brahmananda Reddy National Park. The park is commonly known as KBR Park in the city. Hyderabad ever since the development projects started to shape the city into a metropolis; it became a jungle of concrete structures and steel infrastructures. It was the need of the hour that places which conserves the biodiversity and richness of the areas are still there. KBR Park is one such place in the city which is exotically sublime.
The park was established in the year 1994 and spawns an area of more than 150 hectares. It is located in the famous Jubilee hills area of the city and is named after the former Chief Minister of the State. The park is quite unique in its own way. We felt serenity while roaming in the park alongside the picturesque flora and fauna. More than the man made structure of concrete and steel, its places like these which interests me the most.
We took a lot of photographs inside the park and of the various plants species which are conserved in there. There are close to 600 species of plants and trees which could be found inside the KBR Park ranging from the shrubs to herbs and climbers. There are also some 100 species of birds and 20 species of both reptiles and mammals. These inhabitants of the park seemed to be living in joy and enjoying wide biodiversity of the Park.
The freshness and coolness in the atmosphere could be experienced as one enters the park premises. This is a good escape from the sweaty hot and humid temperatures of the city. The Park is very well maintained and the state of toilets, dustbins and benches ensure that park is clean and well looked after. Overall it is a wonderful place to spend some time away from hectic city life.
The next place in our itinerary was the Salar Jung Museum.
