Have you ever visited Chandigarh? If you have not gone then once you should visit to see the place which enhances the beauty of Chandigarh with your family and loved ones. Chandigarh has the distinction of having a unique world acclaimed Rock Garden. It consists of sculptures, art objects, from industrial and urban waste. A place that doesn’t show its beauty by its name rather than spells out the work done behind it.

The open-air sculptures and concealed gateways separating them are at places enhanced by a waterfall, pools, and an open-air theater with proper stage setting. Rock Garden becomes an almost heritage site. Several prestigious performances have been staged in this small but very artistic and naturalistic open-air theater. Artists and connoisseurs from all over the world flock to see this unique and amazing collection.

Rock Garden is also known as Nek Chand’s Rock Garden. It was built in the year 1957 by officer Nek Chand single-handedly in his spare time and has become a long-standing symbol of imagination and novelty in the city. He was a road inspector in the Engineer Department of Chandigarh Capital Project.

It is near Sukhna Lake and spreads over an area of 40 acres.

Rock Garden is most famous for its sculptures that have been made of scrap, recycled ceramic and other kinds of wastes (bottles, glasses, bangles, tiles, ceramic, electrical waste, etc.)

Things we throw away by thinking that it is useless, the creator of this garden gives inspiration to all use the discarded material in a unique way to make such beautiful things. There is a doll Museum inside Rock garden as a remark of the second death anniversary of the founder of the Rock garden Nek Chand. The museum contains more than 200 dolls made from waste clothes.

The Rock Garden of Chandigarh was started as a small activity in the 1950s, which now has hundreds of sculptures made from waste and discard materials. Millions of tourists from around the world visit this place every year. The Teej festival when the Rock Garden assumes a festive look holds major attractions for tourists.
