Tulip Garden In Jammu and Kashmir Opens For Public; Tourists Start Flocking

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has opened Asia's largest Tulip Garden to the public on the banks of Dal Lake in Srinagar. Tourists have started flocking to the Tulip Garden to enjoy the beauty of flowers.

Over 16 lakh tulips of 68 different varieties are blooming in Asia’s largest Tulip garden as against 15 lakh tulips last year.

Sinha invited people from all over the world to visit J&K and enjoy the beauty of 16 lakh tulip flowers and the warm hospitality of the people. He appreciated the efforts of hundreds of gardeners and workers engaged in Tulip Garden.

3.60 lakh tourists visited Tulip Garden last year

He said that last year 3.60 lakh tourists visited Tulip Garden and I am sure this year the number will increase further. 

Tulip Garden in Srinagar has become one of the major tourist attractions of the valley since its inception. Situated at an altitude of 5,600 feet, the garden came as a shot in the arm for the state tourism department.

Additional attractions for tourists built 

Authorities have this year built additional attractions for tourists that includes a water channel and moving fountains inside the garden, which will add to the beauty of the garden. They hope for a massive footfall at the Tulip garden this year

The Lt Governor asked the Vice-Chancellor of Shere Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Kashmir to make arrangements for growing tulip planting material in J&K instead of depending on imports.

A large number of people, including women and children, were seen enjoying at the sprawling Tulip Garden on the foothills of Zabarwan in Srinagar amid inclement weather and intermittent rains.
