Nature / Park Must See
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.

    Beautiful sculpture made from stones and other stubs. Artificial waterfalls inside the garden attracts the tourists. Small small artificial rivers float around the rock garden. It has lots of statues surrounding the area. You may feel as if you inside a cave. One of the best place in India to visit.

    This garden is designed by a single person. The best thing is all the material used is waste material. It is devided in three phases. All of phases have their own importance. You will enjoy your day at this place. I will recommend you to see this place at once.

    As we know rock garden is made out of waste and it's really good to see how it has been made... The garden has 3 phase and the 1 St phase and 3 phase has waterfall. The main attraction is at last point few distance before exit were you can really see the art sculptures. Overall a good place expect more towards exit...

    A must visit if you have ever been to Chandigarh. A laid back and pretty enjoyable place. A worth visit which requires around 3-4 hours to cover all the monuments inside and sit and relax.

Where to stay in Chandigarh

The most popular hotels in Chandigarh tend to be located in Sector 22. Chain hotels usually occupy the corners of major streets, and particularly refined options boast views of the city's well-maintained green areas. Budget rooms can be found farther from the center and include a few hostels, guesthouses, and basic hotels in the residential areas. The restaurants and cafes of Sector 17 remain a major draw in the center of town. Located right next to Sector 22, the area also offers some of the most luxurious rooms in town.
