Native domesticated animals, mammals and birds of far regions can all be studied here.

Among the native and exotic species the collection of mammals and birds is amazing. The jungle cat (Felis chaus) and the spider monkey (Atales paniscus) are there too.

The tropical shell and snail exhibition is one of the highlghts of the zoological garden.

Located on a 3.4 hectare area, the zoo was founded in 1958.

The botanic garden was founded here in 1992.

The kids can play and feed the domestic animals. Beside this there is a leisure park for the kids with some exiting tools.
