Srinagar: A day after Asia’s largest tulip garden in the valley was thrown open to public, visitors including those from foreign countries are flocking the garden in huge numbers.

Visitors’ rush to the garden is expected to increase manifold in coming days. “It is wonderful to be here. This is of course the heaven on earth. I was desperate to see the garden. Earlier I have had a glimpse of the tulips on screen,” said Mahesh Kumar of Maharashtra, who visited the garden in Zabarwan foothills along with his family.

Tourists of all ages including women and children are enjoying in the garden, as it was sunny late afternoon here. In the morning hours, clouds disappeared gradually as bright sunshine came out in the later afternoon.

“Today, I reached Srinagar and from airport travelled to the garden. It is wonderful and worth seeing. My friends will also reach here tomorrow,” said visibly enthralled Manu from Delhi.

Tourists find the garden a picturesque for clicking pictures and making ‘awesome’ videos. “There is hardly a place on earth like this beautiful garden. The prevailing pleasant weather conditions make it even more enjoyable for the visitors. We have taken some artistic pictures and also videos in different postures in the garden blooming with tulips,” said Manesh Thakur of Kolkata.

An official told Agence India Press that at least 80000 people from several parts of the world visited this place last year with only few locals also visiting it. Given the increasing rush of visitors’ and the normal summer ahead unlike the past year, the state government is expecting huge chunk of tourists from across the country.
