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.

I visited the Guindy snake park with my family. I was having very high expectations but was largely disappointed after my visit. PROS: The park has convenient location. 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...

I had been missing out on the snake park during my past visit to Chennai. The park is closed on Tuesdays and I always landed in Chennai on Tuesday. But this time I got to visit it. There is proper label and information displayed on all exhibits. My driver told me about the "live show". I asked at the ticket... More

My nephew wanted to see the world famous snake park in Guindy and I had to take him along. It was a pleasant surprise for me too though as I got to see one of the largest collection of deadly and non venomous snakes all in one place. The sheer variety of snakes would make a man go 'Wow'.

Small place to see various species of snakes. At the main area a person would give you lessons on various snakes holding them which is quite inforrmative Along with that you would also get to view a few different varieties of turtles and crocodiles Ideal time to spent here would be not more than 30 minutes
