Describe a garden you have visited. Please say - Where is it? - Why did you like it? - Why do you like to go there?


I have visited many gardens in my life.
But here I would like to talk about the rock garden in Chandigarh.
I went there with first time with my college/school trip.
Our school/college organised an educational tour to Chandigarh.

We were 30 students and two teachers.
We saw many places like the Rose Garden, Sukhna Lake, Mini zoo and the Rock Garden.
The Rock Garden by Nek Chand fascinated me the most because it is made entirely of trash.
We spent two hours there and clicked a lot of photographs.
I have visited the rock garden once after that when my cousins had come from Canada.
I enjoyed it then too.
They too appreciated it a lot.
About 5000 people visit the rock garden daily.
It has around 5000 sculptures.
It is a unique garden that consists of various art objects.
But the best part about the rock garden is that each of its artwork has been made by using waste material.
The Rock Garden has become immensely popular.
Rock garden has been established in the form of an open-air exhibition hall.
The garden has sculptures made by using a variety of different discarded waste materials like frames, mudguards, forks, handle bars, metal wires, play marbles, porcelain, auto parts, broken bangles etc.
The garden highlights the value of materials many people consider trash.
People come from different parts of the world to see this amazing garden. 
It is located in Sector 1 near the Sukhna Lake.
Nek Chand received the Padam Shri in 1983 for his efforts.
A sculpture also appeared on an Indian postage stamp.
The Chandigarh Rock Garden is now acknowledged as one of the modern wonders of the world.
