Welcome to Zoological Society of India

The holy city, Kurukshetra where the epic war of Mahabharata was fought, has borne the imprints of Lord Krishna’s lotus feet. The message of Geeta was delivered to the world from this sacred place. Important visiting sites at Kurukshetra include Brahm Sarovar, Jyotisar, Sannhit Sarovar, Ban Ganga, Bhadrakali temple, and many more. This city is situated 160 Kms north of Delhi on National Highway No.1. Also, Kurukshetra is 45 Kms south to Ambala Cantt. Railway Junction. All trains from Delhi to Amritsar/Jammu run through Kurukshetra. All buses from ISBT New Delhi going to Punjab, Himachal and J&K stop at Pipli (160 Kms. from Delhi) from where Kurukshetra University is merely 8 Km (local Transport is easily available). Nearest Airport is Chandigarh 100 Kms in north of Kurukshetra. The temperature during February is normally cold approximately 20oC. Woolen clothing is accordingly required.
It was an real incredible experience for me. The quality of food was only matched by the quality of service I got. I wish I can keep the flavor in my mouth for ever. Thanks for making the evening an unforgettable one.

Our event

A Constitution of the Society, which was named the Indian Zoological Society, was adopted and Executive Council consisting of Dr. Beni Prasad (President), Diwan Anand Kumar (Treasurer), Prof. H.K. Mookerjee (Secretary), Dr. B.L. Bhatia (Business Manager of the Journal) and eight others were elected. However, due to the sad demise of Dr. Bhatia and outbreak of World War- II, in 1939 the Society could not progress well. Eventually Zoologists assembled in the Zoology Section at the Nagpur Session of the Indian Science Congress held in January, 1945, passed a resolution in favour of resuscitating the Society and appointed a Committee consisting of Dr. M. A. Moghe (Convener), Dr. S.L. Hora and Dr. B.K. das for the purpose. Their report was considered by a meeting, held on the 4th January, 1946, of the zoologists assembled for the Indian Science Congress at Bangalore and it was decided to revive the Society.
