Just then, when I thought this was it, I proved to be wrong when I entered the huge dome-shaped structure of the butterfly park. I was simply awestruck by the huge diversity of all assorted multicoloured butterflies, flying from one flower to another. Then we moved further to experience the wildlife, and yes, I saw animals and birds of all possible colours, which was truly amazing. Moreover, the excitement didn’t finish there. This zoological garden also had a section of the aquarium.

Explain why you think it is colourful?

I was just speechless to see thousands of exotic fishes under one roof. What could be more colourful than this place, which had all shades of small to large fishes along with beautiful pretending corals to give us how it feels inside the ocean. I couldn’t resist myself to take numerous pictures of this worth watching place. Besides, the water fountains and children’s play area enhanced the beauty of this park.
