Mysore Zoo - Review

Zebras, lions, hippos and giraffes… this sounds like a good spot for the next production in the Madagascars series. You’ll also catch sight of anacondas, cheetahs.  baboons and white tigers and even a gorilla. The zoo was set up over a century ago by the Wodeyar King Chamaraja, a fervent nature lover. It’s reported one of the best zoos in India. It’s in a good location; a lovely bandstand silhouetted by the Charmundi Hill. There’s a snack bar that serves decent food. Naturally, don’t feed the animals without asking.

Mysore Zoo, Mysore Reviews

  • I've been to this place before as well and this time it was a great experience. This place is well renovated now . Toilets are available every km I recall. Drinking water is also provided free of cost. There is a food court but didn't get chance to try out as we went in pretty late. But after 3 hours walking and just watching these beautiful creations by God was satisfying experience. The animals are well fed and looked quiet happy in their space. The walking trek was very good and there were good safety fencing installed. Overall a good value to time and money.

  • 1.Very big zoo in Mysore. 2. It's also called the Mysore zoo. 3. This zoo is very near to Mysore palace. 10 minutes by car. 4. More of birds are there and less of animals. 5. It's a very big zoo so it's advisable to take a battery vehicle to visit the zoo. 6. Battery vehicle charges are a little higher. 7. There are rest rooms and drinking water facilities available inside this zoo at every hook and corner. 8. Also benches are available for sitting. 9. Various species of animals were there. 10. This zoo is very clean and well maintained. 11. Car parking charges is rupees 40. 12. Tigers and elephants were there.

  • Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens,popularly known as Mysore Zoo is one of the oldest zoo of the country established in 1892. There are large varieties of Animals, Birds,Reptiles etc.many of them really exotic.Detailed information about animals and species are prominently displayed. Guru,the 20 year old male Chimpanzee has become a star attraction of the zoo,losing hair from all areas of his body is like a Monkey-man. The Animals are all sheltered in large and clean open enclosures providing easy visibility of the Animals. I really like to suggest with will be good place for visit with family and children to learn as well.

  • This is a good place to see a lot of different animals. Very well maintained. This is one of the best zoo in India. It's an awesome Zoo. A few enclosures empty in the zoo. 3km covered with all animals will full of trees. Water and wash rooms facilities are available for every 500m and benches everywhere to rest. Happy with maintenance and cleanliness inside the zoo area. The shops inside the zoo is selling some stationary items but the price they gave for some small toys are high.

  • It has it's share of birds, monkeys and also the lions, tigers, elephants. It is a good place for a team/group, family outing. Though it is a long walk, it is worth it for the most part and well maintained with drinking water and places to sit at regular intervals. No unnecessary commercialisation during the tour. However, some of the animal sections could be better maintained and labelled. Especially the reptiles section and the cat family section (extremely dank). I can understand the darkness but the smell and environment really repulses one, whereas those are the sections people are usually most interested in. Maps could be slightly better represented. However, overall an enjoyable experience. Even though I went with my companions, I would recommend going alone once if you have had a little too much dosage of 'people' (at ₹50/person, although it differs for students & children).
