At 20Rs per adult for foreigners you can't go wrong with the rock garden in Chandigarh. We spent just over 2 hours wandering through the park. It's amazing what can be done with recycled materials. This is a quirky bit of fun that should not fail to bring a smile to anyone's face.

Visit once to appreciate the re-cycle of waste bottles, tiles n the likes and see how it can be converted to artistic beauty. Sadly though and ironic too is that the msg this place gives - recycle / put to better use of trash is being mis-construed bu people throwing trash without any consideration that the dustbins are properly provided....

The Garden was designed and initially built by one individual who wanted to use all the left over or trash items to create something with lots of imagination.

Interesting way to spend an hour ... but no more. Lots of sculpture and other forms of art made from recyclable materials. Also a favorite place for young Indian lovers to hide out and hold hands and sneak a kiss. That type of "behavior" not permissible in conservative and cranky Chandigarh.

We went on a somewhat drizzly morning during Monsoon season. Entry fee was low (~20-30 Rupees each). We enjoyed looking at all that the mastermind behind this park had created - using reccyled materials for the most part. Worth an hour or two for sure.

A must visit if you come to this city, it is known by the Rock Garden, do read the story behind it which is mentioned on a display board at the entrance. Very good for children as well.

I went here with my wife. She liked it a lot and I was just okay with it, may be it varies from person to person. But, it is a sure go if you are in Chandigarh. One time visit doesn't harms anyone.
