Mysore Zoo

Mysore (State: Karnataka) the heritage city is located at a distance of 145 kms from Bangalore. Here there are various tourist attractions. One among them is Mysore Zoo. Established in 1892, it is one of the oldest and most popular zoos in India. It is home to a wide range of wild species. Officially the zoo is named as Shri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens, named after the founder of the zoo.

This is one of the well maintained place, where animals are well taken care of. This is a nice place for the kids to get know about the various wild species. The trip through the zoo consumes more than half a day.

For closer look at the animals at the zoo: Elephants, Lion, Giraffe, White Tiger, Zebra, White Peacock, Rhino, Peacock, Sauras Crane, Monkey, Black Swan

If animals must be in a zoo it is nice to know they are well taken care of. Thank you for sharing this interesting collection of animal photos. I’m sure the children get much pleasure from getting acquainted with these amazing creatures.

That's a very old zoo, by Canadian standards, Rajesh, and it looks lovely. I'm sure a visit could take a full day if you let it.

Zuzana said...

I love zoos, even thigh I ma ab it divided over the idea of keeping animals in captivity - still, they are away of educating our kids about animals and let us see animals we might never ever see otherwise.;) It has been ages since I have been in a zoo, time to make a visit.;)

I have been there years ago... truly a wonderful zoo with many wild animals.

Hazel said...

Zoos are always interesting places to visit, although I will always be scared of crocs, gators and snakes. This one you featured, built in 1892 --- well to me the older, the more interesting :)

Kristin said...

Hi, Rajesh :-)

Thanks for your informative post once again. Been following since last year. Always read about your posts of wondrous architectures, and fascinating places of India. An Malaysian Indian friend of mine just when there for a visit. Backpacking around India for a month. A place very rich in culture, it was an eye opener. Hope to one day come myself too.

See you in Skywatch Friday soon.
Have a nice day Rahesh.

Regards,
Kristin

Neat place. I do believe our zoos are an attempt to hold onto our wild souls.

Zoos can be fun to visit as well as educational.
Haven't visited nor done ABC for awhile since I had shoulder surgery in November; healing nicely, tho!
