Lady Hydari Park, Shillong
(3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Designed to resemble a Japanese garden, Lady Hydari Park features a mini zoo, a museum, a special play area for kids, and colorful stretches of rose beds (the park’s most praised feature). Named after the wife of Assam’s first governor, this lush nature haven in the middle of a busy city is home to a diverse wildlife--73 bird species, 100 species of reptiles and 40 of other mammals including porcupine leopard and Himalayan black bear. Stroll among the trees of pines and willows, around small ponds occupied with graceful swans. Take an educational walk through the museum and see elephant skulls and a python’s skin mounted on a wall. Use our Shillong tour planner to visit Lady Hydari Park on your trip to Shillong, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Very nicely maintained and pleasant place. The mini zoo is good too. Large playgrounds for kids. Loved the place! Even as a tourist visiting Shillong, this place should be added to the itinerary.
  • Very beautiful place. U can experience a nano zoo, as there are few caged animals like bears, cats n few species of birds. A small museum is also there.
  • The park is clean and safe. A good place for a family to wind down.
  • A good place to visit and enjoy the day
  • A very good place to visit if you are nature loving..!!! very peaceful place..
