Tulip Garden- The tulip garden is Asia’s largest tulip garden and earlier known as Siraj Bagh. The park was named Siraj Bagh after the person of same name who headed the Kashmir’s floriculture department during the regime of Dogra rulers.

The idea of a tulip garden in Kashmir was originally envisaged by Ghulam Nabi Azad, the Union health minister who was chief minister of the state in 2007.

The tulip garden in Srinagar is situated on the foothills of the Zabarwan mountain range on the banks of the Dal Lake here. The tulips cover an area of over 12 acres and gradually the area is being increased.

The Tulip garden renamed from Siraj Bagh to Indira Gandhi Tulip Park.

Kashmir's tulip garden, where the flowers are in full bloom, was thrown open for visitors in summer capital Srinagar on Thursday.

Around 1.2 million tulips of 60 varieties have been grown in this garden this year.

Assistant flori-culture officer Sheikh Farhan said, “The garden has become a major attraction and an ideal visiting spot for both tourists and locals.”

Farhan said, “red, yellow, variegated, pink, white, orange, light blue, and magenta are the main colours of tulips that are in bloom right now.”

In order to prolong the flowering season, many annual bulbs including phlox, candytuft, antirrhinum, and pansies have also been sown in the garden this year.

The department of floriculture that maintains the tulip garden and other historical Mughal gardens like Nishat, Shalimar and Chashma Shahi in Kashmir has imported nine lakh tulip bulbs from Holland this year for the tulip garden.

Last year the department made a revenue of over Rs.25 lakh and this year expect to overshoot that target as annual flowers planted in the garden would prolong the flowering season attracting more and more locals and the tourists.

In order to maintain the garden, the department has fixed an entry fee of Rs.50 for adults and Rs.25 for children. The visiting hours are from sunrise to sunset.
