The Rock Garden, situated at Sector 1 between the Sukhna Lake and the Capitol Complex, is perhaps the most popular attraction in the city. Designed by Nek Chand some 40 years ago, this unique garden features several art objects that are designed using industrial and urban waste. The 14 fascinating chambers within the Rock Garden, along with the waterfall, the pools and the twisted pathways, make it an embodiment of innovation and imagination.
Spread across an area of 40 acres, the Rock Garden exhibits sculptures made of discarded items of home wastes like broken bangles, chinaware, wires, porcelain, auto parts, fluorescent tubes, to name a few. Building wastes, forks, clay, play marbles and terracotta pots have also been displayed inside the garden in various varied forms, such as buildings, human figures and animals. This amazing garden is open everyday, from 9 am onwards.
