Mangalavanam, Kochi Reviews

  • It is not so big place based on area. It is a marshy area. It is fully covered with trees. Really calm and quiet. You can find birds if an only if you spend more time over here, what I found was crows and bats. Kingfishers, Cranes were also found. They will conduct classes for us if we require. It is best place that contributes peace.

  • Place for birds lives. Lot of trees are planted for living birds. A raised watch tower also built inside for watching around. Beautiful atmosphere inside the Sanctuary. A very good initiative taken for caring the birds. Only problem is not much birds can be seen at day time.

  • It's a nice place to go. Very peaceful quite and calm. Nothing much to see at present , and some work are going on for accessing more area. Can climb the watch tower to have a brief look of the place . Actually we can't believe that there is a bird sanctuary in the middle of the city like Kochi . There are many tree and plants in that , mostly different kinds of mangroves. We can't always be able to see variety of birds there, most of the birds coming there are migrating birds ,so it's based on the time of our visit and all comes with our luck.

  • Good place to visit if you really want to spent your time. birds Soothing sound and cool shade of trees makes it extra special. If you are environment lover you have to visit the place. remember to carry water and take money that need actually. Thank you

  • Very Disappointment as a birds lover. Only possible way to view the birds is by looking at the pictures that the management displayed in the vicinity. Full of mosquitoes and bushy trees. Not a family place to njy and not at all recommended for the tourists. Please avoid this place in your check list. Simply to say: Bird Sanctuary with no birds
