Owner description: Originally started with a more serious conservation point of view, Crocodile Bank is now the weekend spot for a fascinating day of herpetology. For the kids, it’s a special treat to see large crocs spend the day languorously by the water. The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology also allows adults to volunteer and gain hands-on experience in the field.

Really nice to see hundreds of crocodiles at one place. But the place is not up to the mark due to ambience. It's really uncleaned, no proper roads and it's really boring to see the most laziest creatures not moving at all. I'm not complaining about the poor reptiles though. They could make this a nice attraction by improving the quality of the Bank and arranging some show with the crocodiles. Given average rating for the innumerable crocodiles.

If u r a Crocodile lover then this is your best place to visit.
This place is located in ECR after Mayajaal. And this is the home for Variety of Crocodiles around the world, including lizards, snakes and tortoise.
A good place to visit with children.

But here some negative points-
1. Heavy smell from the cages. Veg eater might even vomit.
2. No good maintenance at the place.
3. Some of the cages are found empty.
4. Since most of them caged u wont be able to take clear photos of the Crocodiles.
5. No toilets seen here.

Overall this place is Ok to visit. If u have already visited Snake and children park, then u avoid visiting here..

Nothing to talk about, as usual this park is not maintained at all. You will not be missing anything if you dont visit this park

I stopped by the Crocodile Bank on a whim as sort of a pitstop on the way to the Mahabaliburum (spelling?) temple. The entry fee was very reasonable and I would highly suggest a stop if you are traveling as a family or at all interested in reptiles or wildlife in general. I was not expecting to see such a large number of crocs in one place and although for the most part they were motionless and just basking in the sun, that should be expected since that's what crocs do in the wild. Definitely worth the admission cost but I wouldn't spend more than an hour here. As other reviews said it is quite small and dirty but again worth a gander.

It was a momentous trip. The night safari was good but we missed out on the activity involving the snakes.
