Nek Chand’s Rock Garden, Chandigarh

Chandigarh’s Rock garden is a must visit if you are ever there. Spread over twenty five acres of several thousand sculptures set in large mosaic courtyards linked by walled paths and deep gorges, Nek Chand’s creations combine huge buildings with a series of interlinking waterfalls. It can easily take 3 to 4 hours to cover the entire area. Luckily the day I visited the sky was clear and I got good back ground for my pictures.

  36. Art from waste is so not valued but when you see this it surely inspires me to use all that stuff I have been saving up. I am not an artist but some little project for school can surely be done. Thank you for the motivation.
