Popularly known as Kankaria Zoo, Kamala Nehru Zoo was established at Kankaria in 1951. Bracketed by the 117-acre Kankaria Lake, the zoo is home to various Indian species of about 450 animals, 140 reptiles and 2000 birds. The Kamla Nehru Zoo is under the management of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation. The AMC also looks after the Kankaria Lake.
Apart from familiar Indian animals, the zoo also houses many endangered species such as tigers and elephants. It also cites many rare animals such as the White Blackbuck, Nicobar pigeons, the Indian Star Tortoise, the White peacock and the Spotted Deer. The Kamla Nehru Zoo had also been given the "Best Zoo in India" award in 1974. The zoo also organises free Educational Tours every Thursday.
