The zoo houses a variety of rare and exotic wildlife and nice species of birds, parrots, peacocks monkeys, rhinos, lion, tigers, elephants, wolfs and snakes etc including green anacondas among others. This is the only zoo in India to have gorillas. . Kids also enjoy this place because of open area to play. The Electric vehicle option is also available for people who would not want to walk through the complete Zoo. This zoo makes for a very interesting and pleasant outing. There are many good zoos in India but in my opinion, by far the best zoo in India is the Mysore zoo.

History

Mysore Zoo holds an important place in Karnataka. Established in the year 1892 under royal patronage, Mysore Zoo is one of the oldest zoo in the world. Mysore Zoo was started with an area of 10.9 Acres and during 1907 another 6.22 acre was added to the zoo but now it has been spreaded over approximately 250 acres. This zoo also known as Shri Chamarajendra Zoological Garden, as this zoo was set up out of a portion of the Maharaja Chamarajendra Wodeyar’s summer palace. Maharaja Sri Chamarajendra Wadiyar  was the ruling Maharaja of Mysore. In 1909 the Palace Zoo was named as Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens to commemorate the illustrious founder and since then it bears the nomenclature.
