#Zoo in Gwalior

The Gwalior Zoo is one of the most popular attractions in the city of Gwalior. Gwalior Zoo is also known as the Gandhi Zoo and is home to many rare animals. This is an ideal spot for a day with your family and your children are just going to freak out with all the fun to be had. Families and Wildlife enthusiasts can visit the Gwalior zoo which has a good collection of animals including a white tiger. The zoo is a part of a huge garden known as Phool Bagh which was built by Madhao Rao Scindia and inaugurated by Prince of Wales in 1922.

The Gwalior Zoo like many others has been declared a protected site and is thus maintained by the Municipal Corporation of Gwalior. The main animals here are a white tiger named Jamuna, serpents, golden pheasants, sambhar, hyena, bisons, deer and black bucks. The temperature here falls during the winters making it risky for the deer and black bucks but thanks to the fantastic maintenance facilities here that it has been possible to save many animals from becoming extinct. The Phool Bagh campus also includes a gurudwara, a mosque, a theosophical lodge and a prayer hall.
