"Park has been maintained very well, but the staff are unfriendly and only look at the visitors in the aspect of making as much money as possible. I had carried a camera and my friend who bought the tickets forgot to mention the camera and it's fee. A staff inside the park had begun bothering about the camera and wasn't willing to excuse nor allow to take it into custody so that I could collect it back. I had to turn back and only then made his way clear for others to wander around. Nice tourism development will they have in the future, with this kind of mindset. Maybe he was expecting something, which I wasn't willing to pay. They should restrict at the entry itself rather than embarrassing and making the tourists unhappy. So to hell with these people. "
