The Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park Patna – An Ideal Place for Nature Lovers

My flight journey was very comfortable and I was very happy to book Hotel Budha Heritage for my stay at Patna.  The services offered were very pleasing.  I spent my rest of the evening in the hotel enjoying the ambience of the hotel. The next day I thought of visiting Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park which is very near to Patna Jn.

The park is situated just 2 kilometers away from the Patna Railway station and Airport. I reached the Udyan around 9 am after a good breakfast at the hotel. The entry fee was Just 15 and I was surprised by the nominal entry fee. It is just Rs 5 for the children.

From the descriptions and instructions provided on the notice board I came to understand that the park was establish in1969. This public zoo spreads more than 34 acres of land later in 1972 it the public work department contributed another 58.20 acres to forest department and developed it further.

The publican vist the park from 9 am to 5 pm from Tuesday to Sunday. The whole park was very calm and all the animals were kept in an organized way in their natural habitat. I walked in the park enjoying the beautiful birds and animals kept in their natural habitat. Many of the animals were kept in cages.

This zoological park has more than 10,000 trees of 300 species. This natural habitat is regarded as the 16th largest zoo in India. I explored the diversity of plants and animals. Apart from this the children can enjoy in the children park and the toy train which runs through the park was truly magnetizing. It is also known for preserving one horned Rhinos and has maximum number of Rhinos after USA.
