All the snakes and animals were there in cages. cleanliness is an issue. More of a learning centre. Best: Really long Python 20 ft + Least: Dirty water and smell. Stuff: Camera allowed on charges applicable + entry ticket for all It is a short visit you can view the entire park in 1 hour or so.

The park has a collection of different types of reptiles,snakes,alligators and turtles. One learns about the various types of snakes. A separate section displays crocodiles. There is a deer park, next to the Guindy Snake Park, where children enjoy the most.

It's a good garden if you've interested in seeing all the types of snakes. There is not much if you are thinking to enjoy what you see. Don't waste much time here if you have less time and want to have good trip of Chennai.
