Rock Garden – Chandigarh, Punjab

Place: Chandigarh, Punjab

Date: July 20th 2008

Team: Varun, Swaroop and Vikram

I was in Chandigarh visiting my friend Varun’s Hometown. I asked him what are the nice things to see around and he said there was a rock garden with really old and cheap rattan garden furniture. The first thing that comes to my mind with rock garden is a small park with some huge rocks in it. If that’s what you have thought about you will be surprised.

Rock Garden at Chandigarh is a wonderful creation of Mr. Nek Chand. He was a road inspector in the early fifties supervising the construction of roads in Chandigarh, the capital of Punjab.

He created beauty out of industrial waste. Things like plugs, sockets, broken tiles etc.
