Visit Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden in Srinagar This April

Spread across 30 acres, the Tulip Garden in Srinagar is the largest tulip garden in Asia. We visited the tulip garden and it was a colourful sight to behold! Adorning the garden with bright, red, yellow, white, pink and many more vibrant coloured tulips, this place looks like a beautiful painting of nature. The Tulip Festival is celebrated in Srinagar when the flowers blossom at its best during the spring season. So this government-owned festival doesn’t have a specific date and it differs each year according to the most suitable date. However, it’s generally held between March and May. And this 2020, you can experience the floral extravaganza in April. So book your tickets.
