Great place to see multiple types of snakes and turtles. The place is very educative for young children and adults alike. It clears a lot of myths about snakes. Most snakes are not venomous is something I learnt on this visit. The place is not maintained very well and the security staff was not very supportive. Else a fun place.... More

It's a decent place to take the kids to, they can see all kinds snakes, turtles, crocs and alligators. Adults can also visit it if they are around and desperately want to kill time.

Chennai being a busy and hot city this Guindy Snake park is a bit different from the city. As it is calm and some what lesser in temperature, thanks to the trees. Though the park attracts many visitors, it isn't maintained to a standard but it also depends on the visitors. It has some varied species and will be a... More

I was fascinated by the various snakes and information provided on them. Not glamourous but entertaining.

The Guindy snake park would be disappointing if you have too much expectation associated with the visit. It can also be disappointingly crowded on holidays.The entry fee is quite nominal but the premises are well maintained. The crocodiles enclosures along with the chameleon enclosures and the glass rooms for the reptiles and snakes are the usual attractions. It is nothing... More

The park is having nominal entry charges and closes at 5:30 are two points worth mentioning. It's not maintained as it should have been, Chennai being a hot place you must prepare accordingly.

It has plenty of parking space. Entry tickets are reasonably priced, no additional charge for mobile camera, sitting lounge playing snake movies on various TV screens CONS: All snakes appear to be...
