This garden is attached to the zoo and you walk around here. The place is nice for a leisurely stroll and watching the trees and flowers. The statues around are also nice, though it needs maintenance. Overall it's a decent place to take a walk.

Visited this place few months ago with my friends. We all were excited as we thought we will be able to see many animals but was quite disappointed.

An apology for a zoo. That's what this place is. No Lions, No Tigers, No Rhinos, No Zebras. No wonder the ticket is priced in single digits. The crowds were overwhelming but I am sure they went back disappointed. The only thing nostalgic here was...More
