Too Place to visit
Feb 2020
A single place where u can find all sorts of birds from different nations. their main categories were mostly different kinds and colors of macaws and cockatoo. Kids will enjoy the place. Restricting mobile phones and cameras is a good thought as the radiation may harm the birds. Its a good rehabilitation center for birds.

Birds and Bonsai
Mar 2020 • Family
Sprawling area with all sorts of exotic birds....it's beautiful and fun for children but one feels a tad sad for the caged birds....that's not the place for them...the caged are also too tiny for the big birds...came back with a sad heart though our little girl enjoyed...the Bonsai garden has a paid entry and was great...the bird section is free too but if one wants to click snaps with those birds then it's chargeable

I visited this place for the first time in 2019 and the experience was amazing. So many different varieties and species of parrots are found in Shukavana. A must place to visit with family if you are in Mysore.

Plenty of birds
Feb 2020
Surprisingly we missed out visiting this location during our earlier visits to Mysore. We could see plenty of beautiful and colourful birds of many varieties. Macaw birds of different combinations of exotic colours were a treat to watch. We could have plenty of these birds on your head, shoulders and hold on a tray and have photographs taken

Sri Swamiji has established Shuka Vana (Parrot Park), a rehabilitation centre for birds in the serene premises of Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Ashrama. This park has numerous rare and colourful species of Parrots from the world over.

Horrible and distressing
Jan 2020 • Friends
After five minutes I wanted to let all the birds loose from their tiny cages and set them free. The fact that this hideous place is allowed to continue to exist is beyond me and that it was set up by a so called ‘Sage and Seer’ makes it even worse.

The most magnificent birds are shut in cages not fit for a hamster...two macaws in one cage only let out to become props in photos. Toucan that was so distressed that all it could do was move it’s head side to side in the most distressing manner. A cockatoo that had pulled out all its chest feathers...to name but a few of the horrors that await the visitors.

Using birds, or anything, as a money making photo opportunity at anytime is dreadful but in 2020 when we are meant to be aware of our fellow creatures it is beyond horrifying.

With people clamouring to see the birds and shouting at them through the cage doors, I fear the money that is made will allow this prison for birds to continue and that is very very sad.

Come on Mysore general council, do something.....close it down

DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!! ANIMAL CRUELTY!
Jan 2020 • Business
A cruel, horrendous place where you can see what beautiful endangered birds look like mostly bald through stress. The cages are way too small. Birds are tormented by locals shouting through the cages. If I could I would open all the cages, you are led to believe it’s an open sanctuary but it’s actually hell on earth. I’ll never forget the harrowing cries of distressed birds. Took one look at the cages and left immediately. One of the most distressing and upsetting parts of my trip so far. If you have any morals do not go here. You are basically supporting the capture and imprisonment of endangered species for the amusement of humans.

Awful, horrible place. Prison for birds
Jan 2020
All I could hear were screaming birds. It was incredibly upsetting to see so many beautiful birds shut away in cages with people just gawking at them. They were clearly stressed and anguished. How they claim this is a sanctuary is beyond me.

Sukha Vana Mysuru
Sep 2019
A very peaceful place with lots and lots of varieties of Parrots from all over the world, The parrots will for sure steal your heart. The bonsai garden is also very beautiful, the place is not so far from the main city you will easily get a rickshaw, Photography and Videography is not allowed inside but you can get your picture clicked with any of the parrot and buy it for 100 Rs per photo.
