Nehru Park Indore- Famous For Its Unique Collection of Plants and Animals

After having a solid sleep on the large beds of the cottages, I was completely freshened up and ready to explore the beautiful tourist spots of Indore. We had our breakfast at one of the restaurants inside the resort and left the hotel with a lot of excitement. The hotel had arranged a car for us so that we don’t face any problem during the trip. We decided to start with the Nehru Park Indore. It is located at the Indore BRTS in a place called Doordarshan Kendra in Navlakha.

As the name indicates, the park derives its name from the famous Nehru family. Well, we came to know that it was named after Smt. Kamla Nehru, wife of Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru who served as the first Prime Minister of India. One of the locals informed us that the park is extremely massive, with an area of around 4000 sq. ft. to be precise. The Nehru Park is more commonly called the Chidiya Ghar or a home for birds.

Being an avid lover of nature and wildlife, I was extremely excited on getting the opportunity to enter the Park which is more of a zoo. We had to pay a very nominal fee of INR 20 per head for entering the zoo. We knew that the Park is home to many rare species of animals such as a White Tigress with many cubs. We could also spot a number of carnivorous and omnivorous animals apart from amphibians and birds of different kinds.

Nehru Park is one such place where the animals can not only live in a protected manner but can reproduce and then live happily with their kids. The Park was home to many rare collections of plants as well.

One of my friends told me that the Nehru Park was doing the rounds a few days back as three white cubs were born inside the same. They were named as Smariddhi, Siddhi and Riddhi but one of them passed away as a result of genetic disorder. I didn’t waste in time in using my camera to capture the animals and plants and increase my collection of photos.
