Beautiful and amazing folk art garden in India

Nek Chand’s Rock Garden near Chandigarh is featured in the India episode of Monty Don’s “Around the World in 80 Gardens”.  (Go to 50 minutes 12 seconds in to the video).

The garden was built in secret out of recycled materials.  It is an enchanting example of folk art and a true demonstration of Inverted Commerce, making something beautiful from things that were going to be thrown away.

See more about the garden on the website of the Nek Chand Foundation.
