This is a good place if you want to spend some 2-3 hours away from the busy city. It will be a good show when the cleaning workers are in the crocodile area.

The snake park is a separate section in the Guindy National Park. Here you could see the different species of this dangerous reptile. We saw King Cobra, Pythons, Viper and several other species of snakes. Also you get to see crocodiles here. It's just amazing to see this giant reptiles with their mouths open showing all their fearful teeth.

There are few exceptions like the show of snakes where they extract the venom, the kind of film show is also reasonably good. But the maintenance is pathetic. Good for taking young kids, Poor basic amenities and snacks are worse than the snakes....lol...threatening cost...Good to have such greenery in heart of city.Thanks to Govt.

The park is good with minimum entry fees, inside there are lots & lots of crocodiles, never seen so many crocodiles in a single place, many different species of crocodiles are in the park, Apart from crocodiles, there are many snakes, huge pythons, some chameleon/Lizard & turtles, Over all good place for a 30 minutes to 1 hour visit.

Very good snake park, pretty small , with lots of variety and information. You can see most of the snakes found in India here including the python. Tickets are very cheap and easily accessible. They have made a whole room while exiting which would show you different videos of how things are done, like catching snake, taking out the venom... More

This snake park is a must see! It is a great little attraction suitable for young and old (unless you are scared of snakes of course!). There are disabled toilet facilities (although you do have to wait for someone with a key to be found). The ground is a little uneven in places but there are lots of rails. They... More
