After the partition of India in 1947, the former British Punjab was split between India and Pakistan. As the former capital, Lahore, was now in Pakistan, India required a new capital, so Chandigarh was formed.

The first Prime Minister of independent India, Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru wanted Chandigarh to be a model city for the deluge of refugees coming daily across the new border. As a result, when the Swiss architect Le Corbusier was commissioned to design Chandigarh in 1950, he imagined a people-oriented city of comfortable housing and health centres, with tree-lined boulevards, lakes and gardens, all embellished with his signature "Open Hand" sculptures; symbols of peace and reconciliation.

Rock Garden

The Rock Garden of Chandigarh is a fabulous 40 acre park filled with unique sculptures made from recycled bottles, glass, bangles, pots, kitchen sinks, electrical waste and other discarded items. Built in secret, the park remained undiscovered for 18 years, until 1975, by which time it had grown into a vast labyrinth of interlinked courtyards punctuated with sculptures of people and animals.
