Malampuzha Rock Garden, inaugurated in 1996, is described as a unique
cultural and artistic resource. It is the first rock garden in South India
and the second one in the country after the Chandigarh Rock Garden. Though
not built under the direct supervision of Indian sculptor and environmental
builder, Nek Chand, it has many features similar to the artist's original
rock garden in Chandigarh. The garden is made of unwanted and broken pieces
of bangles, tiles, used plastic cans, tins and other waste materials.
