This garden is the creation of Nek Chand, who collected rubbish & made it into sculptures. The hundreds of humans, animals etc, are made out of broken ceramics, tiles, bangles, marbles, metals, fluorescent lighting tubes etc. He has let his imagination go wild, in the garden of intersecting areas linked by short arches & tunnels. It's madness, but great fun.... More

We were here for a wedding in the family, I could see the area was large and spacious. Thankfully the administrators have left large open spaces and not cluttered the available space with the artefacts. The most quirky feature here are the many swings installed. I could see a lot of adults swing away joyfully. I feel its not a... More

we were their in last week of July, so it was not extremely hot but it was extremely humid. However all the humidity is cool considering the art work there, a must visit if you are in Chandigarh. This is slightly in outskirts of Chandigarh.

It is a very unique concept of one person who collected all waste materials and converted them into a rock garden and oasis. There are tunnels and waterfalls made of wasted rocks, stones and broken tiles and many more. Loved all the figurines made of rocks and tiles.

There are no sky skrapers and houses are more or less similar.The shopping mall at the 7th sector well planned and you can get... More
