  • In 2000, the Buddha Purnima Project Authority (BPPA) was established to maintain specially designated development areas in Hyderabad. Among tourist attractions such as Necklace Road and NTR Gardens, Lumbini Park is being maintained by BPPA.
  • To enhance the inflow of visitors, it constructed additional facilities for laser auditorium, boating facilities among other visually appealing features such as gardens and musical fountains.

  • A partof 2.5 acres adjacent to the park was acquired from the Andhra Pradesh Tourism Department for constructing the laser auditorium. 
  • This auditorium, believed to be the first of its kind in India, can seat up to 2000 people at a time for a show on Hyderabad's history. This was one of the initiatives for the park which was one of the key areas to support the World City strategy for Hyderabad
