Had gone with my kids. It was an underwhelming experience. The ambience was poor & display too. Wonder what are they trying to achieve. I understand they have to keep ticket prices low but there are many ways to achieve a world class level.

As compared to the Jijamata Zoo, entry ticket is on higher side. Duration of visit is hardly a few minutes. Not enough place for people move in and out freely. Variety of fishes are not many.
