Archiving Nek Chand’s Office

During their spring 2013 visit, Nek Chand Foundation volunteers Alan Ceserano and Jan Lewin began vital work on archiving materials in Nek Chand’s Rock Garden office.

The cave-like chamber with its curved ceiling of pebbles set in concrete is home to a rich legacy of papers and objects related to Nek Chand’s creations and history.  It is where Nek Chand has worked and received visitors – many bearing gifts – every day since 1978.
