If you haven't seen a crocodile up close and has a very strong urge to see them then you can surely visit this place. There were only 6 crocodiles there and the fee was ₹100 per head and I didn't feel it was worth it....More

It's a boring place to visit. The place is not maintained at all . The charges are 100 Rs per person. But nothing much to see inside. Few crocodiles are there.. so not at all happy to visit.

There is an entry fee of 100 bucks and there are a few crocodiles. If you have no interest in reptiles, stay away. If you are interested then you can visit once. Don’t expect much.

There are a few crocs and other reptiles in closed environs. They are of all size - really big ones to tiny tots. Just lazing around and doing their thing I suppose! You can spend 30-45 mins. Kids will like this place.

You can take your children and families to see the rare reptile that is at the verge of extinction. Here it's bred and conserved. You can also see other animals.

This place has 8 plus crocodiles with babies. The corcs were all just lazing around, infact they all were so still that one would doubt if they are real. The small ponds are kept pretty clean but the grills look fragile, easily breakable by a...More
