Maitri Bagh-Zoo Overview

Ranked 4 of 13 sightseeing in Bhilai

Mairtri Bagh is a Zoo as well as a park. It was developed by the Bhilai Steel Plant just beside two manmade water bodies. The Bhilai Water Works is located quite close to Maitri Bagh, providing clear water to the township.

Maitri Bagh, which literally means ‘friendship garden’, symbolised the harmony between India and the USSR. Visitors flock the site to view the musical fountain and the shows held at the place. The entrance gate of Maitri Bagh features two artificial giraffes, colliding heads with each other.

This park also features a number of gardens, a lake, a manmade waterfall, a musical fountain and a toy train known as Maitrey Express, which is operated on a daily basis. The toy train runs between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm and the price of the ticket is Rs. 5. However, children below three years can enjoy a free ride.

The park also features a tower known as Pragati Minar, offering views of the Maitri Bagh Park and the steel plant. The Pragati Minar is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
