No cage birds

The bird sanctuary is on summer hill near viceregal lodge. Entry fees in mere Rs. 5 per head. The best part of sanctuary is that the birds are in cage only from outside. But when you go inside everything is open like hens peacocks and all can move freely from one tree to other. No cages stall, only cages are there for the wax bodies of bears and other wild animals. The bird sanctuary is not that great, very small in size but the birds are free that is what I liked the most. It only takes 15 minutes to go through this so do visit if you can spare 15 mins.

Nice but not wonderful

There are not too many animals in it. But still walking through it and taking pics of animals is wonderful. I hope you will enjoy the journey here. Toilets are the problem here you may not find one. Plus no shops for food within 1 km journey.

Have rare species of birds and animals

This is a small zoo kind of thing not actually a park, although they have rare species of birds and animals but it could just be missed if you have other things on your agenda.

Wonderful view of beautiful birds

It was a nice place and full of beautiful birds and wonderful view. It will be better if you travel there with your vehicle, it is so because park has a huge area.

Not worth

I don't like this place because we are just travelling there and we hadn't seen a single animal in zoo except beer. The way of zoo is not comfortable.
