Rock Garden, Chandigarh

Pin It


Two years back we visited the Rock Garden in Chandigarh. I had heard about it before but what I saw was truly amazing. It was unbelievable. The entire garden is made out of recycled material. Even more amazing is the fact that it was started by a single person named Nek Chand secretly around 1957. Later it was found out by the authorities and taken over. It has many man-made structures like waterfalls, bridges, pathways, tunnels, stairs, pillars and such and everything is made out of industrial as well as household trash like broken glasses, ceramics, bangles, electrical wastes like plugs, switches ...

Statues made using broken glass bangles.

Cement sack pillars and ceramic stairs







My camera didn't have enough space in it, so I was not able to click many pics. Such an amazing garden.  I would love to visit it again.
