“Very long walk, be ready”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Mysore zoo is huge, it has many animals. Maintenance is quite good, but could be improved. It is plastic free zoo. They take Rs 10 per bottle if you carry one, once you show the bottle during exit you can get back the money

There were many animals which were alone. I think zoo should think to bring companions or they will die. Or they should give to different zoo
