Surprisingly Good

We had time to kill so went and spent 2-3 hours here. Most of the animals seemed clean and well-treated. Good bird collection.

We had a late night bus to catch & wanted to spend time somewhere cool, quiet & shady. This place was pleasant (we visited on a weekday - it may be noisier at weekends) & the exhibits were interesting. Admission fee was good value.

Sakkurbaug zoological gardens is best place in Junagadh. The animal enclosure is clean. You can see them at very close range. As per site there is museum in it but actually its always closed. There is bus ride which is charged 25 rs/Person which take you to different section of Zoo.

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.
