Kashmir Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden is the largest Tulip Garden in Asia. The garden was opened in 2007. This tulip garden is undoubtedly the first major landscaping project undertaken since the time the Mughals established pleasure spots in Kashmir in the 16th century.
A walk in the Tulip Garden in Kashmir will stay with you longer than you expect. This garden cradles in the gentle slopes of the mighty Zabarwan hills. It is flanked by a manicured lush green golf course in the north and the pristine Dal Lake almost washes its entrance to the west. Antiquity and an ambience of timeless regality are bestowed by the nearby Chashme Shahi and Pari Mahal complexes to this Tulip Garden.
An entry into this garden is akin to savoring paradise as God intended it to be. The eye gets riveted to the numerous PARALLEL running rows of more than a MILLION multi-colored tulip flowers. It’s Asia’s largest tulip garden, that’s enough for someone who is in Kashmir to visit it. It holds over 45 varieties of tulips and the total tulips planted are somewhere around 13 lakh. Originally known as Siraj Bagh, it’s next to Botanical Garden Srinagar. Good for photography.
