  • I went with my husband two weeks before, we expect more, but it's was mini zoo with parrots, pigeon like animals. Good thing was cleanly maintained, but parking charge is high, Rs 45 for two wheeler. 
  • It was a small and good Zoo for a section based, there is a small falls, its was good to bath. Good entertainment. 
  • This is not a Zoological park. You can see few monkeys and squirrels here. Approaching this area is too far and waste of money.
