one of the oldest zoo in India. It is home to a wide range of wild species and takes the credit for alluring vast number of visitors with its rich breed of flora and fauna. Mysore Zoo is a must in the itinerary for sightseeing in Mysore.

Amongst all the zoos, that I have seen so far in India, this one is the best. A good collection of animals, especially giraffe and zebra, that I had not seen in any other zoo so far.
