Welcome to Nehru Zoological Park
Welcome to Nehru Zoological Park, and its sylvan setting, abutting the historic miralam Tank bund, (200 year old, World's first multi arch masonry dam). The Zoo spread in over 380 acres established on 6th October, 1963.
This is the first Zoo in India to have animals arranged in Zoological order, in open enclosures. Such open enclosures, in near natural ambience, makes animals feel "at home". This helps in their breeding, and study on animal behaviour. No wonder, the Zoo has bred successfully several indigenous animals like Asiatic Lions, Royal Bengal Tigers (Yellow & White), Panthers, Indian Rhino, Gaur, Several primates, Bears, Deers, Antelopes, Birds, Reptiles etc. Exotic animals like Giraffe, Iguanas, Chimpanzee have also bred here.
The Zoo is proud prossessor of a large variety of animals.
