Great place for Children

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.

Whatever said for the world famous Rock Garden is less. It is an absolute delight visiting this place created by Mr. Nek Chand ji, especially the old phases, singlehandedly. Hats off to such a creation.

One bold man’s vision to reuse/beautify waste created this amazing place called Rock Garden. Mr. Nek Chand is the man behind this noble concept. Wiki says “In his spare time, Chand began collecting materials from demolition sites around the city. He recycled these materials into his own vision of the divine kingdom of Sukrani, choosing a gorge in a forest... More
