The Sanjay Gandhi Jaivik Udyan Patna - A Perfect Recluse for Nature Lovers

August 14, 2015

I was quite satisfied with the services offered by the Royal King resort that I had booked for my stay a Patna. Near to the hotel only there is the famous Sanjay Gandhi Jaivik Udyan. This park is located at a distance of merely 2 kilometres from the Patna Jn. Railway station and also from the Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan Airport. The entry fee for visiting this park is quite nominal. One has to pay Rs 15 for adults and Rs 5 for child ranging from 3 to 12 years of age to enter the park.
