Srinagar: Thousands of tulip flowers in bloom with myriad colours are adding a magical tinge these days to the already beautiful landscape around Asia’s largest tulip garden situated in Srinagar city.
Weather remained dry and pleasant in J&K on Friday as the Meteorological (MeT) department forecast fair weather in J&K and Ladakh during the next seven days.
“Weather remained dry in J&K and Ladakh on Friday and it is expected to stay like this during the next 7 days. We are not expecting any major change during this period”, an official of the MeT department said.
Scores of people are these days visiting the Tulip Garden in Srinagar where lakhs of tulips in bloom have added a magical tinge to the picturesque garden situated by the banks of the Dal Lake and on the foothills of the Zabarwan mountain range.
