The Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden, which is home to more than 1.5 million tulips in 60 different varieties and colors, has emerged as one of Srinagar’s most popular tourist attractions, attracting visitors from all over the world. The garden is home to more than 1.5 million tulips in 60 different varieties and colors. A.K. Mehta, the Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir, officially dedicated the garden and said that the area has had its busiest six-month period in terms of visitor footfall ever during that time.
Adding that the number is the largest ever recorded thus far when compared to any season, whether during COVID-19 or before, Mehta said that they are anticipating an even greater rise in visitor traffic in the following months.
According to reports, a large number of people visited the garden on the opening day, where they were able to take part in a variety of cultural and musical activities.
The garden has been constructed in a tiered way on sloping land, and in addition to tulips, other types of flowers that are produced here include daffodils, hyacinths, and ranunculus. The garden is open to the public from April to October.
Please keep in mind that the garden is not accessible at all times of the year. The tulips are in full bloom until the end of April during this almost one-month-long spectacle.
