Visit this zoo only if you have nothing else to do in Chandigarh. Its far from the city, not much variety of species given the zoo size.

Best place for nature and wildlife lovers. Kids love to watch real animals. The safari for watching lions is the highlight of this zoo. Even elders can come here as there is a special car arranged for watching the park.
