"The Zoo in Mumbai!!!" Top 5 Page for this destination MISCELLANEOUS Tip by aadil

MISCELLANEOUS, Mumbai: 27 reviews and 23 photos

Favorite thing: The Jijamata Udyan or the erstwhile Victoria Gardens or Rani Baug as it was called is situated in the south of Mumbai in Byculla. The gardens and zoo were laid out in 1861 and are spread out over 48 acres housing some of the oldest trees in Mumbai. The zoo is not really well kept and the animals are not looked after well.

Also on the same premises is the Bhau Daji Lad Museum which has in it's collection one of the stone elephants from the Elephanta Island near Mumbai along with a lot of the old British statues which were removed from public display around the city and brought here after independence from the British Raj!!
