Shuka Vana Reviews & Ratings

  • Great place to take your kids. Even better than the zoo if you ask me. I wish I had more time to spend here. So many different kinds of parrot and toucan. Great opportunity to get a pic with these marvelous birds. My favorites were the blue hyacinth macaw and the toucan. No mobile phones allowed inside which allows you and your kids to see the birds without distraction!

  • Very relaxing and peaceful place. Planning to make more time when I visit next. Amazing and breathtaking experience got a chance to hold a big bird along with a family photo capture. Shuka Vana offers a good family time and very well maintained too. I recommend this place to all age group. A must visit place in Mysore.

  • Good local attraction... A well maintained place... Temple is also neatly maintained... A big parking space... More than 2500 Bonsai Trees give you a Awesome feel... Bonsai garden is a great relaxing and refreshing place... The God statues and Chinese zodiac designed statues and some mysterious statues are really innovative and great... More than day time try to visit this place in the evening time that will be refreshing and you can enjoy the garden better... Parrot paradise is a great place but when you enter you will hear lot of sounds and your curiosity will increase a lot but after seeing the small cages for big size Parrots you will feel sad for the Parrots... Such a great idea but with these small cages you will feel heavy in your heart... Taking care of Birds is a great initiative but give them a extra space to listen some happy songs from the Parrots... Thank you...

  • This place has over 600+ species of birds, including some rare ones, which are brought from various parts of the world. Most of the small birds roam freely inside the shelter, and the big macaws are enclosed in cages, tied in heavy chains-which we did not like. Interesting information about the species is put up accordingly, many things to learn for any bird lover. They also treat the injured ones and protect them. The entry is free. Plus there is enough space for parking.

  • Large variety of birds looks lovely, if you want to watch birds too close and birds sitting in your hands then this is the place for you. We had a great time in Shula Vana. Children will really enjoy. Taking pictures is not allowed inside. If you wish to take pictures with birds then they have a photographer to take photos(chargeable).

    • As far as I know, you cannot click photos inside and if you want to have a photo with birds, you need to pay some charges for that. You can call the center on 0821 248 6486 to confirm.
