A Trip to Indore Zoo

A Zoo represents how human survived, who were our ancestors and how we are preserving those species.

Zoo is one of the best places to visit in the city. In Indore City, Name of the zoo is "Kamla Nehru Prani Sangrahalaya", which is a good place to visit.

This is almost near to the city centre where you can reach easily. There are many kind of animals and birds in this zoo. When you see beautiful and colourful birds, it makes your day. If you are an animal lover then this is nice place to visit.

Personal Experiences : 

It was a Sunday evening. the day was a bit rainy but at the time we headed to destination, weather was clear. At first we took tickets, which were about 30 rupees per head i think. At entrance of this zoo there is a big gate with statues of animals of this zoo, which i found attractive for tourists.

At first there, You will see a red coloured parrot which you will definitely like very much. I like birds specially but if that's about a coloured bird, we all are crazy for those colours. Right!

 After few minutes raining started. As it was evening so weather became a bit cold. Though we continued this. Then you see some black bucks. These are one of the best things. Its black long horns make it more beautiful. In some parts of Rajasthan, Black bucks are worshipped by a particular religion. Why not! indeed they deserve.

Now after black bucks its turn for the biggest animal of Jungle. Its an Elephant. There were around 6-7 elephants at the zoo. all are Asian elephants. A natural atmosphere is given to these animals which is praiseworthy. This place is also good for kids as many of the animals and birds are new for them.

After few minutes we were a bit tired as its a big zoo with many species including birds and animal kingdom. Now you see a peacock sharing his space with parrots. isn't it cool! This picture shows, like humans these birds also share their space with others. White feathers of this peacock is really very attractive.

Then the next one comes, White peacock. This is the best thing here in this zoo which i like most. I saw colourful peacocks many times, but white is unique and you can't find it everywhere. Even in most zoo its not found. These are called "White Pea foul". Indian Peafowl are common and these are also in abundance till now.

Visit to Lal Bagh Palace, Indore


Lal Bagh Palace, Indore

Palace and museum show history, ancient culture, and it also represents the way people lived. A Palace mostly shows luxury lives of those rich and well established families and rulers of that time.

Recently it was a visit to a palace called, Lal Bagh Palace in Indore. Its architecture outside is common, not much attractive from outside like other place's and museum's But Architecture inside the palace is really beautiful.

Side view of the Palace

The palace is sign of Holkar rulers who ruled this region. It was built by Tukoji rao and shivaji rao belongs to holkar dynasty. Its construction started 1844 and end upto 1903 ad.

After taking tickets we headed inside.The palace has big entry gates.  At the entry gate we have to put our mobile and camera, as camera and cellphones are not allowed inside the palace. Its well finished palace and it gives a royal look. Walls are painted with bright colours. after a few footsteps, it was a Dining hall, where one thing i found attractive was paintings at ceilings which was reflecting on a table on the floor. Some paintings depicts royal families portraits and queen which catches eyes of everyone. There are beautiful carvings on the walls which makes it different.

Another view

After this , another thing you will definitely like here is Statue's of tigers which looks like real. The skin of tiger was used to make these. The sharp teeth's and the skin fills it with reality. Though these are enclosed in a glass box for protection. If you are going there with kids, then they will surely like it. Length of the tiger is almost 6 feet or even more.

Then when you will go up stairs, there are some other statues, antiques and different clocks. there were some meeting rooms and guest rooms which shows occasional gatherings of palace.

It takes about an hour maximum to visit the palace. Though there is a garden when you come out of the palace. This garden is filled with trees, and the statues of British rulers can be a good place to take selfie's. Here you can take pictures.

As it was a Sunday, noise of children's playing cricket was encouraging me to play with them, as the palace is next to a ground. Maybe Next time!

Visiting time of this palace is 10 am to 5 pm and its closed on Monday.
