I reached rock garden on a Sunday morning. I didn't expect much as the name says it as a garden, but I was totally amazed by the idea how waste products were beautifully converted into wonderful rock statues, a perfect example of waste management.

Big rocks were blended with garbage to form a cave like structure. The most beautiful part of the garden is an artificial waterfall at the heart of garden. The fall makes it a superb photoshoot location.

Amazing artisanship and the water fall makes it a must visit place in Chandigarh. When done with the garden, one can go for boating in Sukhna lake which is just 2 km away.
