''Rock Garden - Reduce,Reuse,Recycle''

I recently visited my uncle and cousins at ''Chandigarh'' and I must say there's a special charm of this's small,green and cleaner then any metropolitan city in India.
This time I wanted to visit the very famous''Rock Garden''.it is a unique sculpture garden made by ''Nek chand' a government official who started the garden secretly in his spare time in 1957.the park has been made with everyday mundane possessions such as broken pots and bottles.he recycled these materials into his own vision of the divine kingdome of Sukrani in a gorge in a forest near Sukhna's truly splendid and a must visit if yiu happen to be in the city :) hope you like the pictures: 

''A cave room from where the Nek chand started his venture''

''A wall made only with old clay pots.nice concept and could be used to part the gardens at home''

''Cute and tiny clay-houses.I wonder if genomes and fairies live in there <3''

''there were many men made waterfalls!just amazing'' 

''This gorgeous arena is made with broken tiles and pots!''

''this men here is carrying a tray of broken teapot and cups wondering.Tea anyone? ^_^''

''Oh! and here's a bunch of statues embellished with broken glass bangles''

''haha..I guess they are missing there bicycle''

''I suppose it's Cleopatra or the queen of kingdom of Sukhrani''

''and this here is a rider on his cute pony''

I am so inspired by this whole scrape garden concept.there are many great ways we can eliminate waste and protect our environment.!I found these small clay pots lying on a terrace roof in my neighbor hood and I  painted it with acrylic colors and planted these small plants.
