The worst zoo I've ever seen. Empty cages and unmentained. Aminals are about to die . Snake species not soo much. Irony of this stupid place is that it doesnt have the king of jungle "The Tiger". A total cruelity on animals have been examplary here. Dont waste your time here.

I visited this place in March 2014 with family. The parking(2W/4W) is in left of entrance. The fees is 15Rs per adult. They don't allow plastic food items inside, if you carry them you have to deposit it with a refundable charge. Since it is long walk in the park, it is advisable to take electric car ticket if you...

Good things about this zoo: the park is big, clean, and... Well, that's it. There's almost nothing to see, except of small snake part. Definitely the worst zoo I've ever been to.

I would like rate the zoo on various factors, here they are: Cleanliness: Pretty Good. We went there on Monday afternoon and zoo was very clean. Hardly any wrappers or piece of papers we could see. Kind of frisking happening on the entry gate kept all the junk out of the zoo. Space given to Animals: Pretty Good. Animals were... More

Seriously. If its the First time you are visiting Zoo, then fine. If not then avoid it. Mysore Zoo or Bannerghatta national park or any other Zoo I could think I have visited were far far better than this.
