Rock Garden

The Rock garden in Chandigarh is one of the famous spots that any visitor must never skip while visiting the city.

Nek Chand Rock Garden is unique: the surreal fantasy of a local transport official who, starting in 1957, spent almost 20 years personally creating more than 2000 sculptures using stones, debris and other discarded junk that was left over from the 50-odd villages that were destroyed in order to build the city of Chandigarh.
Materials used in the construction of the garden range from concrete and steel drums to light switches, broken bathroom sinks and bicycle frames. Highlights of the garden include a legion of dancing girls made from broken glass bangles and a graceful arcade of towering arches with dangling rope swings. Open all days of the week, the entry ticket for Rock Garden costs Rs 20 for adults and Rs 10 for children.
