mysore zoo

 

The Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens (Mysore Zoo), is one of the oldest and the most popular zoos in South India. It is expanded over a wide expanse of 245 acres and is a home to a wide range of species from the Pythons to the Anacondas, Giraffes, Lions, Tigers, Rhinos, Baboons, etc.

The zoo dates back to 1892 and was originally set up by a German landscaper and a horticulturist under the patronage of King Chamaraja Wodeyar and hence the name. One of the fondest memories as a child is being taken on an excursion to the zoo where it was a treat for the eyes to see the many animals. Just the sight would be a great attraction and also the wide grounds and the lawns which served as picnic areas.

The zoo is characteristic with its wide gardens, the nice walkway, the aviary for the birds and the way the animals are segregated. We don’t have a deer park to mention but the deers are housed in a large park and so are the elephants which are provided a large area to wander. The zoo hosts quite a lot of animals and birds including the popular ones found in Karnataka and also the unique ones imported from different parts of the country and the world. The zoo also hosts a few white tigers, anacondas, black panthers to name a few.

It would still serve as a great excursion or a field trip for a half day event for kids from school. The safety concerns are quite decently taken care of making it a nice outing experience. INFORMATION
