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.

  • Book an electric car for INR 100 and you’ll be able to cover the zoo in an hour.
  • Go in the early morning to avoid the heat, the crowd and the animal nap time.
  • You’ll have to deposit some stuff before visiting the animals. They’ll give you a bottle of water as deposit and youll have to return it.

  • Nearly maintained, a lot has been improved but the feel remains the same. It has remained the same as it was when I used to frequent during my childhood. They have improved the cleanliness in the park. It is still vast and gives us a good walk. Animals are lively, don’t appear dull. The distance to exit is labelled neatly and frequently. There is a restaurant at the end near the rhino section and is at a premium. Overall definitely nostalgic for the oldies, good learning experience for the newbies.

  • Park kept neat and clean. Lake is not fully kept up well and hence it's vast waters spread could not be used for Boating. Birds are found very less..of course could see lots of human love birds around the park.😁 car park charges is double of entry fee. 😈 If you have time and nowhere to go and wants to spend some time peacefully for few hours, Go for it...

  • Arguably the best Zoological Park in the country, the Mysore Zoo is one of the greenest and most spacious Zoos I have visited so far. They have taken utmost care in designing the enclosures so that the animals feel at home. The animals exhibited here look healthy and well cared for and don't look stressed as many such animals do when kept in captivity. Its a long stroll of around five kilometers if you want to see each and every exhibit, but you won't feel the strain because of the clean, fresh air of the compound.

  • Good India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only." India brings out so many different feelings in me. I’ve been fascinated with Indian and Indian culture since I could remember – ever since the 60s with the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.” – Joe Perry India is a land known for its exotic spices, religions like Hinduism and Buddhism, and colorful traditions. Today, India boasts a bustling population, and is increasingly becoming a respected competitor in the global marketplace. Like many countries around the world, India blends together a mix of the ancient world and modern-day living
