Nek Chand Foundation, Chandigarh, India

Nek Chand Rock Garden is unique: the surreal fantasy of a local transport official who, starting in 1957, spent almost 20 years personally creating more than 2000 sculptures using stones, debris and other discarded junk that was left over from the 50-odd villages that were destroyed in order to build the city of Chandigarh. Now, entering this fantastical, 25-acre sculpture garden is like falling down a rabbit hole into the labyrinthine interior of one man’s imagination.
