The Nehru Zoological Park, also known as Zoo Park, is a popular destination in Hyderabad. It is located near the Mir Alam Tank in Bahadurpura, Telangana. The park's construction began on October 26, 1959, and it was opened to the public on October 6, 1963. It is run by the forest department of the Government of Telangana and named after India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru​

The zoo spans 380 acres and is adjacent to the 600-acre Mir Alam Tank. It houses nearly 100 species of birds, animals, and reptiles, including indigenous animals like the Indian rhino, Asiatic lion, Bengal tiger, panther, gaur, Indian elephant, slender loris, python, deer, antelopes, and birds. The Mir Alam Tank, with its unique multiple arched bund (embankment), attracts hundreds of migratory birds, providing another point of interest for zoo visitors​

The zoo also features a nocturnal house, which artificially reverses day and night so that nocturnal animals are active during visitor hours. This exhibit includes creatures such as fruit bats, slender loris, slow loris, civets, leopard cats, hedgehogs, barn owls, mottled wood owls, fishing owls, and great horned owls. Additional attractions include an aquarium, dino park, butterfly park, and tortoise house. The zoo also runs an adoption program, where individuals and corporations can adopt an animal or an entire enclosure, contributing to their upkeep​
