According to my opinion if you are planning to visit Brindavan Gardens, KRS then plan for the whole day so that you can enjoy the trip, go around and also visit awesome aquarium present at this place.  This aquarium even houses a fish called “Arowana” which costs around 40,000 INR.  This aquarium is named after Sir M.
