You may be quite familiar with the Lahore Jallo Park which is a public recreation and wildlife established in 1978 in Lahore. It is one of the three main wildlife parks in Lahore alongside the popular Lahore Zoo Safari and Changa Manga.
Being one of the biggest parks with having an area of 461 acres, the park is often underlooked by tourists and visitors. The Jallo Park contains a lot of facilities ranging from Forest Research Centre to Wildlife Breeding Centre, restaurants, coffee shops, sports complex, theme park, swimming pool and a large fish lake. But its biggest gem lies within the recently constructed Butterfly House.
The Jallo Butterfly House
The Butterfly House was established in the upgraded Botanical Garden of Jallo Park last year and is country’s first ever such facility.
The butterfly garden has 800 to 1000 butterflies freely flying in the park giving the visitors the opportunity to take selfies and get up close with one of the most colorful and beautiful insect species of the world.
To ensure that the butterflies would survive inside the garden, the authorities have created artificial humidity which is critical for the survival of the species.
The garden itself has been built keeping international standards in sight. Which is why without any doubt it is one of the best family places to visit in Lahore. Apart from the butterflies, the garden also has a large aquarium hosting all kinds of different fish of which some are even rare.
