Nek Chand’s famous Rock Garden makes a special appearance in the museum as a counterpoint to the strict geometry of the city. His figurines made out of waste materials like broken tiles and bangles have become synonymous with Chandigarh now.The last display shows the growth of the Chandigarh Urban Complex today and tomorrow.
The Sukhna Lake was constructed across the Sukhnachoe in 1950 with an earthen dam about 3kms long and 14 meters high. The drawings and model show the profile of the lake with the section of the reataining wall. Jeanneret designed the first paddle boats for the lake and as per his will his ashes were immersed in the lake- he is still very much a part of Chandigarh even today.
