One the nicest Zoo in the state to visit. Nandankanan is around 12 kms from the city of Bhubaneswar.It is situated in the chandaka forest range and having a excellent collection of birds,reptiles and wild animals. You need a day or half to roam round the place. You will like the place.

I had a terrible experience visiting the zoo after 6 long years. I agree there has been considerable changes but the staff there are not at all friendly and customer centric.

The zoo is beautiful to visit. However we have not visited the botanical garden due to time constraint. We traveled Ramachandi,konark,Dhauli,Lingaraj Temple,Nandankanan,Khandagiri and Udayagiri in a single day by OTDC bus.In nandankanan we visited Lion,Beer,Deer & Tiger Safari,Aquarium.

In Bhubaneswar, one must see this zoological park for a few good reasons. First, you can see a large number of White Tigers which are generally not available anywhere else, at least in this number. Secondly, it is a breeding ground for tigers and ghariyals ( a kind of crocodiles). Thirdly, you can have a feel of Jungle Safari once... More
