The latest star attraction of India at Srinagar is the Tulip Garden . It is the largest tulip garden in Asia spread over an area of 12 hectares. It is situated on the foothills of Zabarwan range. It was opened in the year 2007 based on the Tulip garden at Holland with an aim to boost floriculture and tourism in the Kashmir valley.
I have been waiting for a long time to see this unique garden.
Generally this is opened for the public in the 1st or 2nd week of April as by that time tulip flowers are at the fullest bloom. However, during 2016 on account of earlier spring season, most of the flowers bloomed by the end of second week of March and the concerned authorities were forced to open the park from 15th March itself. What a gift to us! We never thought of seeing the tulip flowers during our visit. It was a God’s gift to us. I remained in the garden for more than 2 hours on 25th March and tried to capture its beauty in my camera from all possible angles which I could think of.
