    If you love animals then this is a must do, all animals have been given ample space to roam around and you get to see them at such close quarters that I sure was thrilled!! Loved the tall giraffes, the huge bisons and the tiger that was lolling in the grass looking like a teddy bear! Ofcourse we were lucky to catch him outside his cage that day! We even caught a nice bison fight while at the zoo, check the photos! :)

    Mysore Zoo

    by Willettsworld Written Sep 20, 2009

    Mysore Zoo is one of the most popular zoos in Southern India and is located about km southeast from Mysore Palace. It was established under royal patronage in 1892, making it one of the oldest zoos in the world. It's very big with lots of tigers including at least two white ones, elephants (African and Indian), bears, deer, lions, antelope, zebra, monkeys, the only gorilla in India, giraffe, birds, and a rhino which stared at me with just a ditch and no fence between it and me!

    Open: Admission: Rs25 + Rs10 for camera.

    White tiger in Mysore Zoo

    by castorp75 Written May 6, 2007

    Mysore Zoo is definitely worth a visit since animals are treated better than in other zoos in India. (I mean, not all the animals are locked up in depressingly small cages.) Entry fee is ridiculously low: Rs. 20/person (no foreign tariff again, Indians pay the same). The main reason to come here to see the very rare white tiger. She is not behind bars but has a large open-air place to play around. The zoo is large with lots of animals of every kind and also has a large variety of peacocks (even the rare white peacock).
