“Do not miss it!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

The Rock Garden was recommended to me when I had a few free hours between business meetings in Chandigarh. It was amazing and I would recommend it to anyone visiting this city.

Prepare to spend a few hours here - the garden is set up in several phases, with waterfalls, bridges, trees/flowers, statues, and more. The best part is that the entire garden is made from trash gathered by Nek Chand over a number of years. It is amazing to see what beauty can come from broken pottery, trash cans, oil drums, and much more. The garden is like a maze - bring a camera and prepare to spend a few hours just finding your way through the garden.

This is a sight that should not be missed while visiting Chandigarh!

“Creativity at its peak”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is a garden with a different concept, it has thousands of sculptors made with waste material. Although each piece of work has been crafted painstakingly and creatively but the garden could have been better maintained. If you are visiting Chandigarh, this garden is a must visit.

“Perfect Example of spoling a great place”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The Rock Garden of Chandigarh is a perfect example of how not to manage a tourist attraction and how to best spoil a great place.
First view of the place and you really look forward to it. Concept is awesome and work really attracts you to itself. However, very soon you realize how badly managed it is. Entry to the best place goes through streets with urine spread all over and badly smelling.
I would still recommend this place to everyone to go for first time, but I would not go second time.
