There were several mini zoos that were scattered across the state of Haryana. The State Government emphasised on a single zoo’s development in the 17th Meeting of Haryana State Wildlife Advisory Board in 2001. They decided to shut down the numerous mini zoos and develop the Rohtak Zoo. Thus, the Rohtak Zoo was set up in the Tiliyar Lake Complex. The State Government has since, put in efforts to elevate the status of the zoo and transform it into a popular recreational destination. The initial area of 16 acres was extended to 44 acres. 28 acres of land was transferred from the Tiliyar Tourist Complex to the Forest Department in June of 2003. Enclosures for animals and aviaries for birds were subsequently built.
