I haven't expected that .... Friends told me "If you visit Chandigarh you have to visit the Rock garden.". I thought by myself ... oh yes, I will do but what should I expect from a rock garden? It was a big surprise. The more you come in the more you feel the phantasie of that creative man. It is... More

Great place for outing. Neatly designed and developed by waste products. Clean environment is one of the highlights as is the water body. The best place to visit in Chandigarh.

Nek Chand created this masterpiece from waste, a new concept at that time. It is a unique concept of a garden that takes one through a series of low height gateways. Each time you step through one, you are enthralled by a beautiful view that is completely different from the previous. It is in stark contrast to the Chandigarh architecture... More

It is nice place to visit and see the height of a human imagination of thinking what is generally considered as waste for others. How to utilize the thoughtful skill is very dramatically portrayed by the creator of this garden over a long period of time. At a nominal fee being charged for this adorable place to visit and its...

It is best example of creativity from things that are supposed to be waste. A bit monotonous. Things and articles getting repeated. Lack of proper guidance make things dull towards end. Its a breath taking, barrier breaking show of imagination. Go for it.

A must visit, this novel garden made out of trash and broken house hold items such as ceramic pottery, plates, lighting fixtures etc. is a world favourite and a shining example of recycling waste into something that is...

Nek Chand, the creator of this magnificent work of art created from waste material, rocks and boulders, is a magic land. Each section unravels a unique mix of beautifully crafted figurines, walls, animals, as you walk on the pebbled path ways. Turn a corner and you would find a pond, a water fall, a miniature village on a hillock, an... More
