Arignar Anna Zoological Park

The first zoo in India was created in the year 1855 in the city of chennai which was then known as Madras. This was later shifted to become a part of the Vandalur Wildlife Reserve. This is a park which conserves animals in a way that they feel safe and feel at home. They are not trapped or used for any kind of entertainment purpose at all. They are just free to roam around anywhere and the tourists are taken out on jeep safarais by expert guides around the reserve. The Arignar Anna Zoological Park is just a small part of the whole wildlife reserve and the chimpanzees here are fun to watch when they do funny activities.
