Had low expectations, but on contrary we had beautiful display of various kind of fishes even the exotic ones. Well maintained and got awe struck by seeing puffer fish , jelly fish etc. Mark this aquarium a must visit during the Varkala trip.

Been to other aquariums i India... and set my expectations low. The Varkala Aquariums high is there jellyfish aquarium and their low is there obvious lack of watermovement in all aquariums and lack of maintenence. But overall not superbad and the aquarium could be fixed easily i think... And maybe they should focus on saltwater and asian/indian Freshwater fish and skip south american and afrikan cichlids... Just an idea! The fee 30 rp for adults could be higher if the quality was better.
