The Zoo in kolkata is situated at Alipure at the heart of the city. I often go there with my family and friends and found it to be a nice place for a short outing. Almost one can get public transport from almost every corner of the city to travel to the zoo.. always like this place

Thia zoo is quite well maintained in a large space. You will feel the charm of the wildness of our mother nature. From bird aviary to royal bengal tiger you will enjoy all the thrills. Nice place to visit on weekends.

Thank Mayukh C
