  1. Belagavi has a holiday on tuesday we would request the respective authorities to keep it open on Tuesday… and allot another day as a holiday

  2. Good & Quick beginning to the opening of this Zoo.. Distance of 13 kms. from Belagavi city is Not much. Any way an ideal occasion /opportunity for holiday revellers to enjoy here maintaining S.O.P. for carona/covid-19. H’MMMmmmnnn…….

  3. Yes the Karnataka is tigers and lions state. I hope this type of wild animals may attract the neighbour tourists…..
