Asia’s largest tulip garden, situated in the lap of the Zabarwan mountain range, that overlooks the famed Dal Lake in Srinagar, is now welcoming tourists to its abode.
The Tulip Garden has become home to more than 1.5 million tulips in 60 varieties and colors. One of the major tourist attractions in Srinagar, the Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden, manages to attract tourists from across the globe. During the past six months, the region has recorded its highest-ever footfall of tourists. Also, the garden was inaugurated by A.K. Mehta, Jammu, and Kashmir Chief Secretary.
A further increase in tourist footfall in the coming months is expected. Mehta also mentioned how this figure is quite high as compared to any season, irrespective of COVID. To amuse the visitors, a series of cultural and musical events were organized. On the first day, a huge number of locals and tourists visited the garden.
Apart from the gorgeous tulips, many other species of plants like daffodils, hyacinths, and ranunculus are grown here. One more amazing fact is that the garden has been built in a terraced fashion on sloping ground.
It is to be noted that the tulips remain in full bloom till April; hence, the garden is not accessible throughout the year. So, it is almost a one-month show.
