The Rock Garden has received the Safaigiri 2015 award for cleanest park in India. The India Today-sponsored award was presented by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Chandigarh Union Territory Advisor to the Administrator Mr Vijay Kumar Dev in a ceremony at the Hotel Taj Palace in Delhi on October 2nd.
'This award is dedicated to citizens of Chandigarh,' Mr Dev, the most powerful official in the city's administration, was quoted as saying by local media.
Many volunteers for the Nek Chand Foundation have worked hard to clean the Rock Garden during their stay, and it is the Foundation's recommended way to start a volunteer visit and become familiar with the Garden and its visitors.
