While not the most modern zoo it is committed to caring for endangered species. They no longer capture animals but rather rehabilitate injured or orphaned animals

Big zoo with many animals and birds. Electric car option to travel available in zoo; elders and people with short time at hand should opt for it. Well maintained and clean zoo. Amongst the best in India.
