About Rock Garden in Chandigarh

One of the most famous attractions of the ‘City Beautiful’, the Rock Garden was created by a self-taught Indian Indian artist, Nek Chand. Rock Garden, Chandigarh, history dates back to the early 1960s when Nek Chand, a Public Works Department employee, began creating a garden for himself. As it was a forbidden area, and any sort of construction at that place was forbidden, Nek Chand worked secretly during weekends, and at nights.

The Rock Garden of Chandigarh adorns a huge area of 40 acres, and witnesses over 5,000 daily visitors. Considered as one of the finest modern wonders of the world, the exquisite Rock Garden is one of the best places to visit in Chandigarh. Rock Garden Chandigarh timings are 9 am to 7 pm every day. The garden closes early at 6 pm in the winter months. Rock Garden Chandigarh location is near Sector 4 A, B and Sector 5. Rock Garden Chandigarh entry fee is INR 30 for adults and INR 10 for children.

Nek Chand began creating sculptures from discarded rocks, scrap materials, and all sorts of recyclable items that were thrown away while demolishing the villages in Chandigarh. Using broken crockery, colorful stones, concrete, and simple tools, Nek Chand created a masterpiece all by himself. But one fine day some inspectors discovered this illegal construction, and soon a notice was issued to demolish everything.

The news of this fascinating park had spread across the city and a large number of people started visiting this place. Finally, the Chandigarh Landscape Advisory Committee decided not to demolish this masterpiece and hired Nek Chand for a full time job to finish his creation. In 1976, the garden was officially opened to the public, and was named Rock Garden.

Later, funds were issued to expand the park in different phases. Today, the park not only features unique sculptures but also includes a few waterfalls, creative walls, narrow doorways, swings, trees, an aquarium space, and concrete arches resembling ancient Roman aqueducts.
