Mumbai Zoo, officially known as Veermata Jijabhai Bhonsle Udyan, is located near Byculla. Built during the British rule in 1861, the zoo was then named as Victoria Gardens. The site of this zoo is in proximity to the chawls and slums, the low income housing colonies, of Mumbai.

At the main entrance of the garden lies a clock tower that depicts Italian Renaissance; however the clock does not work anymore due to lack of maintenance. The Mumbai Zoo is home to a large number of endangered species, along with other animals, including lions, bears, tigers, elephants and monkeys.

Along with the Botanical Garden, Mumbai Zoo sprawls across an area of 48 acres. Being the only zoo in the city, it is frequented by hundreds of tourists every month. Travellers can reach this place via public transport modes such as buses, auto rickshaws or taxis. It is also located at a walking distance from the Byculla Railway Station.

"Informative place for children"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted Oct 8, 2014
Its a best place to hang out with the family's and friends. For children's its the good place to know about the animal's and there habitat's. So take your children's to the zoo to learn about the animals very closely. If the children see them in really try will learn more properly.
