Zoo is stil a good place for family day out with friends and kids. The Place stinks at some point but it still worth going for. There is a museum inside which is worth watching. Also there is one old Plane and you always get a park to sit and have popcorn and enjoy the wind.

We used to go there in a gathering of Family and companions, you can see the real piece of the Zoo in Toy Train or strolling, play and have some good times in the Garden with some great nourishment. One must visit gallery inside the zoo which has an endless gathering that too extremely well kept.

It stands by the title and is one of the gem in the city of nawabs. Varied species including the exotic White Tiger, Rhinoceros, Giraffe among many others are there to delight the human eye. It stands way above the over-hyped major zoos across other states.
