Srinagar, Apr 13 (UNI) The '' Mughal gardens'', on the bank of famed Dal Lake, were formally thrown open for public today after six winter months.

However, tourists and locals were visiting the gardens even during the winter when the valley experienced the heaviest snowfall in 20 years.

But the main attraction this time is Tulip garden, at the foothill of Zabarwan hills on the bank of the Lake, where more than 12 lakh tulips in about 60 varieties are in full bloosm.

Hundreds of locals, besides tourists from outside, visited the Mughal garden, including Nishat, Shalimar, Cheshmashahi and Harwan today.

However, the Baisakhi is being celebrated here tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Mehboob Iqbal has extended his greetings to the people on Baisakhi.

In his message, Mr Iqbal said Baisakhi has special significance for the Sikhs, as on this day in 1699, their 10th Guru Gobind Singh Ji organised the order of the Khalsa.

He hoped the festival brings peace and prosperity to people of the state.
