explain why you remember it?
I remember visiting rock garden in Chandigarh last year, with my family. The garden was so big and unique that I still remember it. It is sculpture garden and is completely built of industrial and home waste and thrown-away items. It was started by Nek Chand, a government official in 1957.
He used to collect the industrial waste and the other city waste and created the sculptures from them. The garden is regarded as a unique place and the perfect symbol of recycling. The layout of the garden is that of a lost kingdom. The moment one enters the garden, the small entrance doors which make the head bow, not only creative an ambience of royal but also impart humbleness. One has to pass through a verity of doorways, archways, vestibules, streets and lanes of different scales and dimensions, each one opening into a new array of display or courtyards and chambers lending an air of suspense and curiosity at every corner, at every turn.
An open air theatre and a vast pavilion with a center stage are the other highlights of the rock Garden where art and culture blend amidst rustic and exotic environs of the garden.
Most people go there to visit and see it, it is rather a tourist spot and lots of people come on daily basis.
I remember looking at the garden and being awed by the beauty the garden is made of. I mean no one can say that it is made of waste because they have been put to so great use. I think everyone must visit it during their life time.
