I would say that this place still has it's charm for the kids but for adults this is just an unappealing place. The monkeys are not healthy...you'll see a lot of skin disease or somthing.

Most of the animals you see here are sleeping monkeys, they also look a bit malnourish. The entire place needs further maintenance. The set of animals you can see is very limited.

My son (3 yrs old) loved it...but we as parents came away with a tear in our eyes. The condition of zoo was falling apart. The animals looked malnourished and far from happy, animals are given to you to hold with wounds on their mouth...More
