Recently I was in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand state. I had a chance to visit this place called "Bhagwan Birsa Jaiwik Udyaan". For the people who do not understand the name this is a beautiful biological park/zoo located around 16 kms from Ranchi. I must mention the name Birsa Munda belongs to a warrior who launched fierce battles against British rule in 1857. He is very respected and popular in Jharkhand state. This place is located in Ormanjhi. This biological park is spread in area of 104 hectare.
The best thing about this place is its peaceful and greenery atmosphere. The animals and spices stay in a natural environment. It felt like you are walking in a forest. The zoo hosts many species, animals and it does have a lake to enjoy boating facility. The trees are so dense and long; it felt like you are standing in a forest.
The ticket for this zoo costs 20 INR for each person. You can buy the ticket till 16:30 and the zoo is close after 18:00 PM.
These are some beautiful pictures which I took while visiting this place.
