By the time we reached there it was almost dusk. The guard at the gate told you can cannot enter now. However, he gave some valuable insight into this place. He told the Marble palace zoo is the first zoo built in Kolkata and it was latter shifted to Alipore zoo. However, still large species of birds are here. As a private property photography is prohibited here. So I took two pictures from outside. Though I could not see it from inside, it looked to me an interesting place. It is said to house some famous art works.
