Kurumbapatti Zoological Park: A Haven for Wildlife and Nature Enthusiasts, Nestled in the foothills of the Shervaroyan Hills, just 10 km from Salem, Tamil Nadu, lies the Kurumbapatti Zoological Park, a sanctuary that not only captivates visitors with its diverse array of wildlife but also plays a crucial role in the conservation and rehabilitation of animals. Established in 1981, this zoological park started as a modest museum and has since expanded to cover an impressive 69 hectares, making it the second-largest zoo in Tamil Nadu.

The park is home to a variety of species, including monkeys, spotted deer, sambar deer, and the star tortoise, to name a few. It also features an elephant named Andal, who, at 58 years old, continues to be a gentle giant and a favorite among visitors. The zoo's commitment to conservation is evident in its rescue and rehabilitation efforts, often taking in wild animals from the surrounding reserve forests.

A recent renovation in 2019 introduced a butterfly garden, enhancing the park's appeal with 3D artworks of animals and an artificial waterfall, creating an immersive experience for all who walk its paths. The addition of flowering plants and beehives near the butterfly garden aids in cross-pollination, further contributing to the park's ecological diversity.

Visitors can also enjoy the sight of exotic birds like the white peacock, grey pelican, and various parakeets, housed in specially designed enclosures for optimal viewing. The park's gentle topography, bamboo areas, woodlands, and semi-perennial streams provide a natural habitat for these animals, allowing them to thrive.

The Kurumbapatti Zoological Park is more than just a place to see animals; it's an educational journey that raises awareness about the importance of wildlife conservation. By visiting, you support these efforts and help ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy and learn from the rich biodiversity that the park preserves.

For those planning a visit, the park is easily accessible from Salem and offers a unique opportunity to connect with nature and witness the beauty of wildlife in a serene environment. Whether you're a nature lover, an animal enthusiast, or simply looking for a peaceful retreat, the Kurumbapatti Zoological Park is a destination that promises an unforgettable experience.
