Quite a huge place...I think it takes a minimum of 2 hours to get through the entire area of I guess around 3 km. Good to see most of the animals have a bit of space instead of a cage which is one of the reasons i prefer a wildlife sanctuary to a zoo. There are loads of trees as... More

The zoo is spread wide.. But we could not see much animals probably it might be a wrong time for our visit.. As we entered the bird section we could see the white peacock spreading her feather and dance... this sight was just amazing.. I have never seen peacock dancing with her feather out before...

Lot of animal varieties and a perfect place for a peaceful stroll. It should be a high priority place, if you plan to visit... More

Good place to spend half of your day.. Better to reach there by morning itself so that you can can cover most of the area before it gets too warm. Battery operated carts are also available in the zoo.

The zoo does contain a variety of animals, birds, and reptiles. The Indian pythons was an awesome site. Many verieties of birds are availble. The main feature I liked about the zoo is the systematic way they have architectured the zoo. The pathway for walking through the zoo had been systematicalky build. Young children will also have a glimpse of... More

I saw a white foul (actually a peacock) rarest of rare, for the very first time. Check out the pictures posted. This place has heritage buildings and tracks for jogging... More
