Kids Attraction 3: Mysore Zoo

Date: 19th April 2015

Visitor: Arun

Fee: Entry Rs60 on holidays, Rs25 for camera

Timings: 8:30AM to 5:30PM. Closed on Tuesday.

Recommend to take battery operated vehicle for Rs125 if you have kids and elders.
On day 2 of my solo trip to Mysore went to the famous Mysore Zoo.

Though i am not fond of seeing animals in captive i visited here because this zoo was home to some spices which i may never see in wild (Giraffe, Zebra, migratory birds, etc...) :(.

The zoo was well maintained and most animals look healthy though they may not be happy.

Get the tickets outside the zoo and the camera tickets needs to be purchased after entering.

Zoo keepers put a label on plastic water bottles and allow inside.
You need to pay Rs10 here and collect it after showing the labeled bottle when you go out.
First section is the birds and you can see some beautiful birds very active.



Multicolored parrot.
Cute couple.

Next was the big cats section.
Tiger cooling off in artificial pool.
White tiger a variation of Bengal tiger.
Indian Gaur.
Hairless Chimp. Freaky.
White Rhino grazing.
Black bear.
The zebras, another cute creation.
King of the Jungle.

It will take around 2-3 hours to visit the whole Zoo.

I skipped the reptile section as i become very tired walking.


There is also a souvenir shop if you want to buy some t shirt, caps etc..








Best of the whole visit. The Giraffes. Couple of them were standing so still that i thought it was some clay model.


Kids sure will enjoy this place. One of the must visit in Mysore.
