They collect Rs. 3 per adult to visit this place but yes it worth only for that. Coin exhibition & Mirror house are nice but other than there is nothing inside and the place is not well maintained.

Located Near Kamala Nehru Zoo, Its must visit with kids, My niece seemed to delighted with the rides in the play ground. Mirror house is another attraction to look for in Balvatika. The entry fees are quite low, in the range of Re 1 to Rs 3 making sure that the place is easily accessible to all the kids.
