Its an amazing place. Its a well maintained place. other attractions nearby are the elephant rescue centre and lake for boating. If you are not used to of sweat n heat then do not plan your visit in monsoons. The biggest negative part was... we were charged rs. 1000 as fee to use our camera.

Go to the elephant rescue centre. You can feed elephants some bananas. The mahouts are patient. Please donate even a little money as this goes to feed for the elephants. Good work at the Bear Rescue Centre. Keep it up. Thank you for educating us.
