Asia’s largest Tulip Garden in Srinagar was on Sunday thrown open for tourists and locals by the Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha.
The garden houses 1.6 million colourful flowers in the sprawling garden on the banks of the Dal Lake.
“I invite people from all over the world to visit J&K and discover the mesmerising beauty of 16 Lakh tulip flowers and enjoy the warm hospitality of our people”, Sinha said.
He directed the Vice Chancellor of SKUAST Kashmir to make arrangements for growing Tulip’s planting material in J&K instead of relying on imports. The effort will ensure that J&K is able to tap the Rs 400 crores market of Tulips in the country, the LG added.
The Tulip Garden has become an attraction for tourists and locals who in large numbers get themselves photographed with the Tulips in the backdrop.
