"Building itself is fish shaped"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 30, 2014
This is not a very big aquarium but its building is very well made in shape of a fish. There are two separate sections for large and small fishes. Entry fee is very nominal. A must visit place for small kids. They not only like inside fishes but fish shape building of aquarium itself become huge attractions for them.
