Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium Assam : On my way back to my hotel I decided to make a stop at the famous Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium. This huge infrastructure has some quite interesting attractions. The stadium holds major Olympic meets and is among one of the best stadiums in India.
My eyes were filled with wonder as I entered the gates of the Jawaharlal Nehru Biological Park Bokaro. This park is situated in Bokaro, Jharkhand and is considered to be the biggest zoological garden of this state. A large variety of animals and birds have been shifted here from different parts of the world ever since the park was inaugurated during the early 1990s.
To me the main attraction of this park seemed to be its count of big cats amongst a large number of birds and animals. The park has remained immensely popular amongst Indian tourists ever since its inception in the early 1990s and late 1980s. The fact that this park is a good shelter for birds and animals of all varieties touched my heart. I was delighted to get a view of its in-house cat breeding process, which increased its possession of cats to a great extent.
I was amazed to see a great collection of white Tigers, Asiatic Lions and Royal Bengal tigers within the premises of this biological park.
This place is famous for its flora besides its elephant ride and viewing tigers. Much of its wildlife seemed to be comprised of animals of various species like peacock, langurs, bears, sloth and Panthers. A kids’ corner and a bear cage present beside the artificial lake caught my attention within this zoo.
I took a few snaps of a place where in this lake is associated with a small dam, that’s visited by thousands of visitors every year. Apart from this, I found some entertainment for kids as I saw the ‘Mowgli Express’, a toy train moving inside the park. Your little one is bound to find some happiness while riding this train as it takes him past the major attractions of this park.
It was during the 1980s that the Jawaharlal Nehru Biological Park Bokaro was built, and during 1989 it was modified. The park assumes its name from the then prime minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Apart from bears and Emu, I came across several birds and animals ever since I entered this park.
It just required me to drive for a few minutes to reach this place from Bokaro in Jharkhand. The grounds of this park also showed me through a huge aquarium alongside so many birds and beasts. I’ve read a number of books that mention this park and its rich possessions.
An actual bliss to my travel was my place of stay where the always smiling staff provided me the room services with extreme attention and promptness. Struggling to stick to my depart time for sightseeing, I would leave a mess in the room at the morning, but after a long-day excursion return to an orderly arranged room with sweet fragrance, courtesy the devoted staff members. They had been supportive and friendly and offered me with the best and exclusive treatments for making my stay pleasurable. They had consistently helped me to escort to my commuting places through reliable agencies complemented for a single traveler like me. I thanked them for they had arranged the same rental car for my visit to the next place, National Zoological Park Delhi, a serene and tranquil environ to the capital city.
The park has a welcoming entrance by the Mughal Kos Minar and stepping up to the red sandstone gate, I could admire the wide spread expanse of the zoological park. The Delhites call it as ‘Chidiya Ghar’ and this park is located near Pragati Maidan, Mathura road.
Spread across 176 acres of land, it provides tremendous recreational facility to the people and the visitors. It has a variety of species, sheltering almost 130 species of birds and 1350 species of animals.
The plethora of reptiles, uncommon birds from Africa and America, mammals are all comfortably housed in the park. On a stroll along the walkways, I was fascinated with the sight of hopping squirrels, the authoritative roar of white tiger, perching birds from the back of wild animals, hidden black buds from the trees behind and many more, hence make the place a haven for animal as well as nature lovers. I looked around and adored the place to the fullest.
A perfect place for the family picnic and school tours, I was terribly missing my loved ones to share my experiences. However, without being much emotional I succeeded in getting some snacks hampers for the refreshment purpose from the cafeteria located at the spot. A mobile van riding was an added incentive to me to see the whole place. For me, a tour of Delhi could never be complete without the magical charm and enchantment of the National Zoological Park Delhi.
