CHENNAI: Arignar Anna Zoological Park in Vandalur will have a 'zootorium' as the state environment, climate change and forest department has issued a government order allocating funds to set up the facility.

As per the order, the zootorium will have 3D and 7D theatre at the old auditorium within the zoo premises. A new zoo museum and an interpretation complex with an interactive display model will be set up enabling people to discover, explore and experience wildlife in a new way.
