Owner description: Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens, popularly known as ‘Mysuru Zoo’, is one of the oldest zoos of the country established in 1892, by His Highness, the erstwhile Ruler of Mysuru Sri Chamarajendra Wadiyar Bahadur. Mysuru Zoo holds an important place in Karnataka. In 1909 the Palace Zoo was named as Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens to commemorate the illustrious founder and since then it bears the nomenclature. Mysuru Zoo has gradually grown into tourist centre, imparting wildlife values. It has got 123 years of history exhibiting wild animals in the near natural enclosures. Despite majority of the zoos have been shifted from the original place to the new places, Mysuru Zoo could modernize the zoo, without shifting the zoo. The zoo is well compacted unit, with modern animal enclosures including heritage buildings attracting tourists all over the world.

Our children including ourselves liked this zoo.
White peacock looked beautiful.

Place has benches to rest at multiple points so elders can relax, purified water is likewise available at various points.

Entire place is clean and people follow and help maintain it clean.

Only negative feedback is that battery operated cars are too few and too expensive. They should be included as part of the entry fee.
Also, why should one pay for cameras even if it is DSLR, families go to such places and want to click some photographs to keep them as memories.

Good place to see rare animals and kids will love this place. You can find animals like lion, African elephant, free here. You can see them from very short distance and cages are open from front side.

A well maintained zoo , the whole area is clean and properly marked. Also there are water and washroom stops at regular intervals.

There are various types of animals ranging from tigers , chimpanzee , giraffe , kangaroo and also different types of exotic birds.

There is also an electric vehicle available which tours around the zoo. If you don't want to walk the 3 km path then it is the ideal option.
