Srinagar: As Tulip bloom is over, the Tulip garden, Siraj Bagh, Srinagar has been closed for general public from May 01, 2015. This was stated by Director, Floriculture.
“This season Tulips could not attract visitors like that of previous years due to incessant rainfall,” the director told U4U Voice.
Located in the foothills of the Zabarwan Mountains, the garden has over 100 varieties of tulips in various hues. The garden was developed by Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad in 2007 when he was Chief Minister, with the intention of advancing the tourist season in Kashmir, and it has so far worked well. Earlier, the historic Mughal Gardens used to be the first choice for tourists visiting the valley. Now, it is the tulip garden that has become the place to visit.
