It is very evenly located to chandigarh, a short deroute from... More

Went to the zoo after years, to show my three year old, his favorite animal these days......an elephant. The zoo has changed a lot in the last few years for good. The main entry gate is being renovated. Ferries have been introduced. There are about 13 ferries which take visitors around the zoo. The ticket costs Rs 50 per person... More

Zoological park situated close to Zirakpur, India and is an abode to a large variety of birds, mammals and reptiles. The lion safari is the most interesting part about the Chattbir Zoo.

It is a good size zoo near Chandigarh, all animals are in cages, don't go for lion safari because there is only one lion left.

Visited in afternoon in September, it was very hot. Many animals were inside their shelters but we still managed to get good views and pics. Plan your trips in winters during midday. Tickets for entry, lion safari and zoo tour are 50 per adult so quite economical. Eatables inside are also priced very well but not much options. We felt... More

All animals and birds are kept in neat , clean and natural enclosures and kids had a good time viewing them. There is a lion safari too... More
