Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens, popularly known as ‘Mysuru Zoo’, is one of the oldest zoos of the country established in 1892, by His Highness, the erstwhile Ruler of Mysuru Sri Chamarajendra Wadiyar Bahadur. Mysuru Zoo holds an important place in Karnataka. In 1909 the Palace Zoo was named as Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens to commemorate the illustrious founder and since then it bears the nomenclature. Mysuru Zoo has gradually grown into tourist centre, imparting wildlife values. It has got 123 years of history exhibiting wild animals in the near natural enclosures. Despite majority of the zoos have been shifted from the original place to the new places, Mysuru Zoo could modernize the zoo, without shifting the zoo.

Excellent zoo. The animals are very well kept. We did not find a single enclosure which was empty. It is a no plastic zone and is extremely clean and well maintained. A buggy is available for folks who cannot walk the tour.

This zoo is very badly maintained and the animals in it look starved and depressed. Very depressing place to visit.

Never visit Mysuru during holidays, too many people from Bengaluru and Kerala. Zoo is ok, but too many No Entry sign boards, animals are less.
