Nek Chand’s Rock Garden

A clandestine project. A quiet rebellion by one man. The Rock Garden by Nek Chand, a roads inspector in the early 50’s, was unplanned – yet it is a major attraction in Chandigarh today. After scaping 12 acres by himself for every night over 20 years, he had a veritable trove of statues and constructions made entirely from waste and debris. Today, the Garden stands at 30 acres and is one of the quirkiest things in India.
