There has been an unusual rise in temperatures, dry weather conditions and they have resulted in withering of Tulip flowers along with other varieties of flowers in Kashmir valley.

Due to the withering of Tulips, the J & K government has decided to close down Asia’s largest Tulip Garden in the lap of Zabarwan hills on the banks of Dal Lake from Monday.

The decision was taken by the authorities as the flowers have withered and there is nothing to be shown to the tourists who are coming in record numbers to witness the Tulip bloom.

Tulips and other flowers in the spring season of Kashmir sprout in March and used to remain until April end because they used to get a lot of showers and cloudy weather conditions.

The government also opened the Tulip Garden earlier because the flowers sprouted due to the rise in temperatures in the early days of March.

According to the figures available with the government during the current season Tulip Garden witnessed record breaking number of tourists of more than 3.5 lac.
