Hats off to the creativity and thought behind this creation. Great concept. Very inexpensive. Our fellow travellers have made the place and water dirty by throwing papers and PP water bottles - sad.

Rock Garden is made by Nek Chand from 100 % waste articles mostly of bone china, pottery etc. It's a great work of art and show that what most people think is waste can be used to make wonders if you look from the eyes of an artist.

This is a truly awesome place. The way it is maintained and managed is a lesson for all those who are managing historic monumnets.

I liked the way they've carved out stones. It is very lovely to see the type of art presented here. This is type of a small garden only and if you are in Chandigarh for a day or 2 then you can pay a visit here for an hour or so.

I recommend this place a must visit whenever someone is in or around Chandigarh. This would give a person the insight about this world heritage site and the hardwork that has been put in by its creater Mr. Nek Chand like how he got the idea to create such a thing, how he went on collecting the waster material all...
