Creator of world famous Rock Garden Nek Chand died in Chandigarh at PGI, where he had been admitted following chest pain. He was 90.

The Padma Shri awardee, whose 90th birthday was celebrated by the Chandigarh Administration on December 15, built the city’s iconic Rock Garden from waste and other unused household materials.

Nek Chand, who was born in a village now in Pakistan, worked as a road inspector of the Public Works Department.

His body is being kept at the Rock Garden today to enable people to pay their last respects, his family said, adding, the cremation is expected to take place tomorrow.

Spread over an area of 40-acres, the garden was inaugurated in 1976.
