About Zoological Garden

The city of Jaipur, the colourful and vibrant capital of Rajasthan abounds in tradition, history, folklore, grandeur, architectural splendor, exuberance as well as panoramic natural beauty. Among the various parks and sanctuaries in Jaipur, the Zoological Garden, or the Jaipur Zoo deserves a special mention.

Developed on the decrees of the ancient Shilpa Shastra, there is no dearth of places to sight-see in Jaipur. Apart from the majestic monuments and the ornate palaces, the efflorescence of Jaipur's natural beauty is manifested in the city's parks and gardens. The charming scenery of the saffron sunlight playfully casting its beams on the lush greenery is indeed a sight to behold.

Jaipur's claim to fame rests in its illustrious Zoological Gardens. The captivating charm of the beautifully tended landscaped gardens flourishing in the colourful blossoms of the seasonal blooms is enhanced by the presence of a zoo; an aviary, a greenhouse, a herbarium, a museum and a sports ground. Pools glistening like quicksilver coupled with exquisitely sculpted fountains dot the lush and sprawling lawns in the City of Gardens, while colourful flowerbeds fringe the park's boundary.

The park also houses a century-old Zoological Garden that abounds in flora as well as a variety of wild beasts and exotic birds. The zoo's crocodile breeding ground is renowned all across the country. Apart from housing some of the rare species of animals, the zoo is abode of some variegated species of birds that include ducks, geese, white peacock, chattering lorry, parrot and pheasant. The zoo, with its collection of 71 varieties of fauna, is open throughout the week except on Tuesdays.
