The Rock Garden of Chandigarh, Chandigarh

(4.5/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Admire the eclectic stone sculptures in The Rock Garden of Chandigarh, a spacious park and outdoor exhibition space featuring an array of art pieces made entirely out of recycled materials. The project was created in 1957 as a hobby of local government official Nek Chand, who collected junkyard materials from around the city. Exploring the park, today a landmark of Chandigarh, you can view thousands of charming statues made from broken glass, cement, and other discarded materials. Use our Chandigarh holiday planner to add The Rock Garden of Chandigarh and other attractions to your Chandigarh vacation plans.

  • Worth visiting specially if it rains here. check my attached photos to see TICKET FEE AND TIMING. 😊👌
  • Rocks sculptures everywhere but one thing to notice is that is is made up of waste materials like cups and plates etc. Nice spot to enjoy and take some good pictures.
  • Good place for enjoying and there will be the idol made up of rock of ancient times people and and lots of things to enjoy in the garden
  • A garden inspired by a man's childhood. Everything here is made from discarded wastes. It's creativity at its best. Must visit if you're in Chandigarh.
  • Such an amazing place to Hangout with ur friends n loving ones. Best visiting time is depends upon the weather because too hot may hurt you, like in summer, otherwise this place is a wonderful. It has 3 different phase n last one is the best one.
