Entering this 25-acre sculpture garden is like falling down a rabbit hole into the labyrinthine interior of one man’s imagination. Transport official Nek Chand created this surreal fantasy from concrete and recycled junk, working at night to keep his eccentric masterpiece from the prying eyes of the city authorities. Materials used in the construction of the garden range from concrete and steel drums to light switches, broken bathroom sinks and bicycle frames. Highlights include a legion of dancing girls made from broken glass bangles and a graceful arcade of towering arches with dangling rope swings (you may have to queue for a ride).
