great place, we were impressed by the way the zoo is maintained. its got plenty of animals. also the management has taken care to keep electric golf carts to ferry people within the zoo, as it is quite large. visiting the place during winters will be definitely better, as one will be able to give more time than during summers.

Excellent place to visit with family. I visited here so many times with my younger kids and they fully enjoyed the visit & got the knowledge about many animal/birds. Any can select their electric Vehicles at a nominal cost of 50 bucks per person. Good time to visit Feb/Mar and Sep/Nov.

Cleanliness and greenery along with ambience of the environment adds up to the charm of this trip. A good time pass for 4 hours. The majestic Royal Bengal tiger... More

Nothing exceptional about this. I visited this because I had some time with me in Chandigarh and the place was not far from hotel I stayed. You may visit this if you have young children with you and have not seen a zoo, but won't miss much if you skip this.

Every animal has lot of space to move but that makes difficult to see these animals. Lot of compartment have same type of animals. Some rare animals like Giraffe were not seen.... More

This is perhaps on of the best Zoo's in India. The clean ambience with lot of greenery all around is relaxing. You can take a battery car ticket or rent a bicycle or just walk around the zoo. All the cages are well kept and clean. The animals also looked healthy. My 3 year daughter had a great time. Do... More

The zoo is very good and spread over large area, one can either walk from one cell/area of animal to other or can even hire an electric car. The lion & deer safaris are ok
