You can find almost all animals found in mainland India especially in state Gujarat. There is a museum, an aquarium and special attraction showcasing snakes. You will not find extremely exotic animals like "Polar Bear", "Panda", "Giraffe", "Hippo". You can see "Lions", "Tigers", "Bears", but no "One Horned Rhinos". Howsoever the garden has numerous indigenous animals and birds.

Normal zoo decently maintained. Nothing great, but nothing bad either. Rest rooms could have been better maintained.

History has it that this zoo got this name because of the presence of a garden having sweet water in its premises. Set up at a sprawling 200 hectares, this zoo is located in the Junagadh... More

It is very much helpful to young children for their knowledge of wildlife. They do have some rare species which is not easily seen in other zoo. Animals are also in good condition. Lion safaris within the zoo is must see attraction.
