When one enters the garden one simply gets spellbound by the variety of tulips grown in the vast area of 12 hectares. It resembles a field but when one sees the tulips blooming it brings a smile on everyone’s face.

One can visit this garden from March end to April end. These exotic flowers generally bloom for very less time as increase in temperature are not favorable for them. So the window to observe these attractions is very less. It is recommended to visit in first part of the cycle i.e March and April begin otherwise one will be at loss to admire the full bloom of all the varieties.

Not just famous for the tulips one can enjoy other variety of flowers in this garden. The whole experience of visiting this tulip garden is full of piousness and is relaxing. With colors and beauty around it contends the heart that we live in the world full of beauty around.

While walking around the garden admiring the shades of colors in the tulip’s petals I came across this lovely tree that pulled me to come near it and admire the blooms on the trees. It is indeed bliss to see that even trees around are offering such lovely clusters to cherish.
