Madhu Bala born 2007-00-00 Comments / picturesThe Karachi Zoo (Urdu: کراچی چڑیاگھر; Sindhi: ڪراچي زو چڙيا گهر), also known as Karachi Zoological Gardens, is located in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It is the largest zoo of Pakistan and second oldest zoo in the country after Lahore Zoo.
Karachi Zoo, established in year 1878, was commonly called as 'Mahatma Gandhi Garden'. Earlier in 1861, the zoo was transferred to municipality by the British Indian government. In 1878, the municipality placed the zoo under a trust to be developed out of public subscription. Later, the zoo was once again opened to public in 1881. After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the name was changed to 'Karachi Zoological Gardens' or 'Karachi Zoo' for short.
