  • Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park is located near Bailey Road. It is a good place to visit in the evenings for some quite time in nature 
  • It is also known as Patna Zoo. Full of opportunity for all age. Small kid, young boys ,girls,elderly will find very charming campus full of flora and fauna. No of eat outs are there. I go for morning walk and exercise along with spouse. Morning is full of health conscious people of all group. Morning aroma fills me with joy and happiness.
  • Good Place for Morning walk. Very big premises with lots of Greenery. A lot of animals. But avoid it in Summer noons. The food court inside is very costly and they loot you with charging more money than MRP. Better come with own food items.
