The bridges.

The bridges within the zoo are very well planned. They are kept in big heights and the animals lie at the bottom.


The lions in the cages of the zoo are very beautiful. They are well fed and very well maintained in the zoo.


Cages for the lions are very safe. Lions are very ferocious and lot of efforts should be given by zoo authorities to keep them safely within the cages.

Hindus and bengalis dress in new sarees on the day of Kalipuja and Laxmipuja. The festival of lights bring peace and prosperity in everyone's life.
