Nehru Zoological Park, Hyderabad was established in vide G.O.Ms. No.247, dated 26 October 1959. It was opened to

the public on 6 October 1963. The Nehru Zoological Park is run by forest department, Government of Telangana,

and is named after the first prime minister of the country, Jawaharlal Nehru.

The zoo occupies 380 acres (150 ha) and is adjacent to the 600-acre (240 ha) Mir Alam Tank. Nearly 100 species of

birds, animals and reptiles are housed at the zoo, including indigenous animals like the Indian rhino, Asiatic lion,

Bengal tiger, panther, gaur, Indian elephant, slender loris, python, as well as deer, antelopes and birds. The 600-acre

(240 ha) Mir Alam Tank with its unique multiple arched bund (embankment), attracts hundreds of migratory birds,

providing yet another attraction for the zoo.

The nocturnal house at the zoo artificially reverses night and day for the animals so that nocturnal animals are active

while visitors are at the zoo. This exhibit includes fruit bats, slender loris, slow loris, civets, leopard cats, hedgehogs,

barn owls, mottled wood owls, fishing owls, and great horned owls. There is also an aquarium, dino park, butterfly

park and tortoise house.

The zoo runs multiple safari trips each day through the safari area where animals such as Asiatic lion, Bengal tiger,

sloth bear etc. are housed. The zoo also has special educational shows and feeding sessions scheduled each day.

Other attractions include a natural history museum and a train.
