Some unique exhibits include zebra and giraffe. The water body are quite serene but do not have many birds. Worth a visit on an idle day.

The basic idea of closed cage zoo is appalling and this zoo is so unkept that you will sorry for the animals. Not a pretty sight at all.

Its a pleasure experience.I enjoyed the every facility with a great Triumph in its own. Every service is perfectly maintained.People can put their own heartiest request to some of the birds to talk in Hindi and listening them is great feeling.Hope my every friend enjoyed it. Have a tribute to employees.

Thank naman408
