The visit to the Falaknuma Palace was mind blowing. The rooms and halls of the Palace were lavish and awe inspiring. After the visit to this Palace we went to visit the Nehru Zoological Park in the city. This was the place which we visited on the request of my kids. The Park is one of the most visited destinations in the city and houses more than 100 species of animals.
The zoo is located near the Mir Alam Tank in the city. We reached the Park after having our lunch. The first section which we visited inside the Park was the animal section. There are nearly 100 species of different birds and animals which include endangered species like Indian rhino, Asiatic Lions and Bengal Tigers. Apart from these animals we also witnessed the Panthers, elephants, Deer, Antelopes and many different species of Birds from all over the world.
We took a safari trip inside the Park. This is a fun ride which goes through the sections where Asiatic lions, Bengal tigers, sloth bear and other animals are housed. The natural history museum of the zoo is also a fun learning way to get educated about the different animals and species. The zoo also arranges a feeding session and other educational shows.
One good thing which I admired about the zoo was its nocturnal house which artificially reserves night and days for the different animals so that all nocturnal animals are fresh and active while the visitors are there in the park. This exhibit houses bats, loris, civets, hedgehogs, barn owls, and other species of owls. Apart from this there is also an exhibit which houses an aquarium and a dinosaur park, Butterfly Park and a house exclusively for different species of tortoises.
The kids were thrilled to visit the Nehru Zoological Park and so were we. We clicked many pictures inside the zoo to keep them as memories forever. After this visit, it got a little dark so we decided to visit the biggest attraction of the city of Hyderabad, Charminar, the iconic structure which defines the very essence of the city.
