about rock garden

A fantasyland created out of industrial waste, rocks and concrete, Rock Garden in Chandigarh is an artistic splendour. A living monument to Picasso’s adage “Everything you can imagine is real”, the breathtaking garden is a place of superlatives. Designed and established on a conserved land, it was the creator and artist Nek Chand’s own secret garden that he worked on in his spare time. The thousands of sculptures that stand today in the shape of human beings, birds, monkeys, soldiers, are entirely made of waste material that Nek Chand collected over the years.

As you enter Rock Garden, the path will lead you through a series of maze-like arches, tunnels and bridges, with passages leading into open-air galleries full of sculptures made out of broken glass bangles, ceramic pottery, wires, etc; each even more striking than the one before. At some point, midway through the place, the walls close in and then open out to a stretch of waterfall, with the stream of water leading from it occasionally filled with quacking ducks. Be sure to peer closely at the walls you pass; you will find them to be made of broken plates, sockets, gunny bags, glass bangles- all bound together with cement.
