Wildlife in Hyderabad

We can see that the park has a topography made up of several rocky exposures that are characteristic of Deccan formation. The fauna of the wildlife sanctuary is as varied as they come. Foxes, black-naped hares, Wild boars, as well as Indian vipers are the most striking species for the curious traveler.

The Mahavir Harina Vanasthali National Park located in Hyderabad is one such great attraction. The wildlife park, named after the holy saint of the Jains, Lord Mahavir, is located in Vanasthalipuram, which is a residential suburb about 15 kms from the main city. It is particularly known for being a home for endangered animal species, Black Buck deer. The deer, which is also known as Krishna Jinka in the local language, is also the most hunted animal in all of India in the 18th and 19th centuries. The other animals found here are cheetahs, wild board, porcupines, monitor lizards, and several varieties of snakes.

Visitors can see the animals through sheds and viewing towers. The government has also introduced van safaris to take the visitors on a ride within the park to watch the animals closely.
