"Not so good and not that bad. Good, if you take your family for some fresh air. Bad, if you think its a big zoo and all. There are many animals like Leopard, Deer, Bear, etc and many birds too. Recently a cub was brought here. "

"The zoo has some special items not seen anywhere else, but that's it. Small in area, it's better skipped, unless you need your children to be kept entertained. Animals are not kept in good condition. I didn't feel like giving even 1 star, but I expect improvements in the future. "
