Rock Garden, Chandigadh, Punjab, India

Sector 1, Chandigarh

Chandigarh has the distinction of having a unique world acclaimed Rock Garden. It Consist of art object, fashioned from industrial and urban waste.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, beginning 1957, and it was about 2 decades before anyone discovered its existence. An unpretentious entrance leads to a magnificent, almost, surrealist arrangement of rocks, boulders, broken chinaware, discarded fluorescent tubes, broken and cast away glass bangles, building waste, coal and clay-all juxtaposed to create a dream folk world of palaces, soldiers, monkeys, village life, women and temples. The open air sculptures and concealed gateways separating them are at places enhanced by a waterfall, pools and an open air theatre with proper stage setting. Several prestigious performances have been staged in this small but very artistic and naturalistic open air theatre.

Chandigarh: - The only city to be the capital of two states in India is Chandigarh, which serves as a capital of both Haryana and Punjab. The city is prosperous, cosmopolitan and comfortable. The distinct city was designed by an architect Le Corbusier. The people-oriented city has it all, starting from lakes and gardens to grand civic buildings to sweeping boulevards. Chandigarh came into existence 60 years back. The nearby Rock Garden is a park that features multiple sculptures made up of stones, industrial relics, and recycled ceramics. The city has been divided into sectors and each sector is self-sustained and pedestrian friendly. Most visitors flock to the sector 17 and sector 22 as they are famous for shops, restaurants and hotels respectively!
