Banjara Lake or Hamed Khan Kunta is a small water body located in Banjara Hills in Hyderabad, Telangana, India.[1]


The lake was built in 1930. At the time the locality had mansions and residences of royal elite. It was once a water body that was once spread over an area of more than one kilometre.


The lake receives sewer water from adjoining localities, efforts are on to conserve the lake by organisations like Save Our Urban Lakes (Soul).[2]
