  • It's THE LIEU to visit when you're in Chandigarh. Obviously it is very well known and attracts many Indians (couples, families, school visits ...) The Rock Garden is filled with original works of art: earthenware sculptures or ceremics sometimes created with everyday objects or recovery (taken electric, crockery!) or representing cohorts of monkeys or strange individuals.....

Note: a nice museum at the entrance of the site as well as a kindergarten.
