The charm of the Maharaj Baug and Zoo of Nagpur lies in the fact that it has a historical lineage, unlike many other places of its kind in India. The Maharaj Baug and Zoo at Nagpur was established a long time back by the rulers who used to belong to the Bhonsle dynasty. There is a fascinating garden, which is called the Maharaj Baug. The name of this garden suggests the historical background of the place.
Maharaj Baug was a wonderful park, which was later converted into a botanical garden. It was laid down by the Bhonsle rulers of the erstwhile Nagpur State and today, it also houses a zoo, which serves as home to some rare species of birds and animals.
