The Rock Garden

The Rock Garden in Chandigarh is an amazing maze of broken plates, ceramic pots, old bits of bangles and any other pieces its creator, Nek Chand, came across during his lifelong job as a road inspector. He began construction of the garden illegally in 1973 and when the city found out, incredibly, they started giving Mr. Chand a salary so he could continue his work. It is now 25 acres.
