This place is quite good and exciting for children who will love to watch the animals especially the white tiger which is so royal. Although it has now aged, it is still marvelous.

The Zoo is not properly planned. From Entrance you have to walk for more than half a kilometer to watch animals (except porcupine which is near entrance). Then, after watching animals (very few in numbers), you have to again walk that stretch to come back to entrance and go to other side of the zoo to see birds and Snakes.... More

We went there yesterday (a sunny February afternoon) at 12:00 pm. The Snake Park part of the Zoo is small, easily doable. Snakes & tortoises/ Turtles can be spotted easily. The animal zoo part is huge. One has to walk a lot. Comparatively there are few animals. The trees, shrubs etc. in the park are undisturbed by humans. That is... More

It was an average visit, limited animals and too much to walk with limited directions. The good part was they have washrooms and watercoolers available at regular intervals. Outside food is allowed and entrance fee is 25 rupees per adult.

The good thing is limited only to snake park, which is close to entry gate. The birds, snakes & reptiles. The other part of zoo has wild animals, but its quite far to reach and too much scattered. Its better to take the bus service present there to visit it, or else you will end up getting tired and will... More

It offers quite a collection of animals with long walks through the campus. One of the largest reticulated pythons I have ever seen is here. It also offers safari experience.
