Must visit place in Mysore. The best place to keep your kids engaged for the whole day. The collection of animals is really good.The sequence in which the animals are kept is fantastic which starts from birds, then herbivorous then carnivorous & finally reptiles. You have the option to adopt an animal.

Opens at 8.30 am...your auto wala may dissuade you saying that it opens late....don't give in. See it... More

The animals were healthy and enclosures clean. Suggest you reach the place when it opens as it is not... More

I have visited many zoos in India and this seems to be the best. They have every animal you have heard of including giraffe, bengal tiger etc. You will get tired walking but you wont stop enjoying.
