Location: in Sector 1 between the Capitol Complex and Sukhna Lake
Highlights: exquisite artwork made from industrial and urban
Chandigarh rock garden is an epitome of creativity and innovation. It
is a unique garden that consists of various art objects. But the best
part about the rock garden is that each of its artwork has been made by
using industrial & urban waste. It is located in Sector 1 between
the Capitol Complex and Sukhna Lake. The credit for laying its
foundation goes to Nek Chand, who was the then Road Inspector in the
Engineering Department of Chandigarh Capital Project.
Rock garden has been established in the form of an open-air exhibition
hall. The garden houses sculptures made by using a variety of different
discarded waste materials like frames, mudguards, forks, handle bars,
metal wires, play marbles, porcelain, auto parts, broken bangles etc.
Rock garden in Chandigarh, India is a unique creation and connoisseurs
come from different parts of the world to see this amazing garden.
