The area
Neighbourhood: Adyar
One of the costliest quaint neighbourhoods of Chennai is Adyar, that gets its name from the Adyar river that flows nearby. It has rich historical and cultural roots and is sprinkled with some of city’s oldest residential houses. Home to the IIT campus and with the Guindy National Park close by, it is considered to be one of the hottest spots in the city with the best of eateries, an easy access to the beach and a shopping hub. It’s worth taking a walk in the quiet bylanes to sample traditional south Indian dishes at well-known local family-run establishments especially the rural food from Tamily Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. A visit to the Padmanabhaswamy Temple keeps the flavor of the temple town intact.

Kids enjoyed it, specially the standing of rat snake. If you are wearing shorts, then wear some mosquito repellent . Its worth the price and time spent, not too fancy

An interesting park with a lot of good information on big signboards. A bit run down but the snakes and other animals inside seemed OK. Very reasonable entrance fee, and further inside you could buy food to feed the green lizards and the two parrots. A very nice and calm visit after the traffic in Chennai.

This was a must visit place as a child for me. Visiting with my kid was a trip down the memory lane.
We went around 3:30pm. The reptiles were probably just coming out of their slumber because we got to see the albino python yawn (the biggest yawn I have ever seen), snakes having their afternoon feed etc. The enclosures are well kept and have information placed at center. The costumer center is also very informative.
The highlight however for us was the walk in iguana enclosures. They definitely look scary but We were all glad we did it. A special memory to behold

A must visit for children, as the layout of the park helps individuals mentally classify the reptiles and amphibians into venomous and non venomous in their natural environment .Besides, the informative displays educate the reader about the reptile

This place is a must go place if you are visiting chennai with little children. They would enjoy the snakes as well as other reptiles. Seeing various snakes from close proximity would definitely make their mind curious. Also the entry ticket is very reasonable with a nominal fee for camera. The place is maintained well too.
Overall a good place to spend time with family. Recommended.

A great place to see and learn about snakes, crocodiles, lizards and amphibians.
Lots of love exhibits and you're able to get really up close and personal.
No different charge for foreigners (makes a change) 100rs for adults plus there is a small charge (30rs) for using a mobile phone. A really fun and inexpensive way for spending an hour or two
