It is with great sadness we announce that in the early hours of June 12 2015, the great Nek Chand passed away. He had been the foremost self-taught artist in the world and his extraordinary achievement in building the 25 acre Rock Garden, complete with 2000 statues, waterfalls and amphitheatres, is unsurpassed. We will not see his like again and send our heartfelt condolences to his family. Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoled the death of Nek Chand. "Nek Chand-ji will always be remembered for his artistic genius and fabulous creation that is cherished by many. May his soul rest in peace."
