about arignar anna zoological park

Holding the distinction of being the first public zoo of the country, Arinagar Anna Zoological Park in Vandalur was established in 1885. This place will endow you with 1,500 different species of wild animals, 46 of which are presently endangered. A zoo that began with the Nawab of Carnatic's personal animal collection on the persuasion of Edward Green Balfour, it was thrown open to the public for free in 1861. Over the years as its repository of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish expanded, the zoo changed its location thrice and was finally moved to Vandalur Reserve Forest on the outskirts of the city away from the urban noise.

Waste of money, waste of time, waste of energy, worst maintenance, never ever seen before like the zoo anywhere in India. Now ticket rate also increased at 50 for adult, 20 for children
