About Mumbai Zoo

The Jijamata Udyan is one of the most popular places to visit in Mumbai, originally constructed during the British Period and called Victoria Gardens. The zoo is located in Byculla, in every centre of the metropolitan city of Mumbai. Constructed in 1861, the Mumbai Zoo is home to many endangered species of animals and birds.

The zoo is spread over an area of 48 acres, mainly surrounded by Mumbai’s chawls, or homes of the low-income public in the city. The zoo has a clock tower in the very entrance, made in Italian Renaissance style. Although the clock doesn’t tick anymore, the architecture of the clock is one to reminiscence.

Mumbai zoo boasts of some of the oldest trees in the area, that were brought in and planted in the zoo. Mumbai zoo’s aviary has a lot of rare birds, which makes it a hit among the attractions in Mumbai.
