Fantastic place to visit with your children. They will be amazed by the amount of elephants in this enclosure. They will also appreciate seeing these lovely creatures being fed, bathed and groomed. A time to cherish for many years to come.

It is a nice place to visit if you are an elephant lover. Children also would love it. It is one of those rare places where you can see so many elephants in one compound. You can click pictures and cherish them...especially in front of those big tuskers.

A good experience to see so many elephants in one place other than forest. Many elephants were not seen in kotta. Displaying of all elephants name would be more attractive.

Pros: - Kids will love this. And so will adults. Who doesn't like these majestic animals - There are around 50+ Elephants here of various age and sizes - The entry tickets are pretty cheap - Ample parking space available, if you are driving down in your own vehicle Cons: - The biggest letdown is that there is no guide...
