Established in 2007, the Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden was created to extend the tourist season in Jammu and Kashmir beyond just summers and winters. It began with 50,000 tulip bulbs imported from Holland and quickly became popular among tourists, growing steadily in terms of both visitor numbers and tulip varieties.

Last year, the garden welcomed over 3.65 lakh visitors, including both domestic and foreign tourists, showcasing its increasing appeal as a tourist destination. It has also become a favored filming location for various movie and video productions, with several film units choosing to shoot parts of their projects amidst the garden's scenic beauty.

This year, the administration has instructed the Srinagar Municipal Corporation to conduct sanitation drives and provide mobile toilet facilities. Additionally, the floriculture department has expanded parking space by nearly 22,000 square feet, aiming to accommodate the influx of visitors conveniently.

The Tulip festival, an annual celebration held during the onset of spring, aims to showcase the garden's diverse range of flowers and attract tourists from across the globe. Alongside admiring the blooming tulips, visitors can enjoy cultural programs, indulge in local cuisine at food stalls, and participate in various activities highlighting Kashmir's rich culture and traditions.
