Established by Dr. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, the Founder of Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Mysore, Shuka Vana is home for More than 450 species of parrots totaling to over 2200 birds find home at Shuka Vana, established by Sri Ganapathi Sachidananda Swamiji in Started in 2012 with the objective of giving shelter to abandoned birds and sick birds. Shuka Vana most importantly gives shelter to injured & uncared birds with a high degree of commitment and compassion. Sri Swamiji has taken a serious resolve to take care of physically challenged birds that are not receiving proper care with their owners who have lost interest in them.

Shuka Vana has made it to the Guinness World Records for housing the largest number of bird species in an aviary. The certificate was presented to the swami this May. And with its formidable diversity of birds, and 2,200 individual birds, the aviary has turned into an education center of sorts for children.
