In 1976, Nek Chand's 'secret' Rock Garden was officially opened to public view. Awarded the Padma Shri in 1983, with a postage stamp in his honour, Nek Chand has been feted by art lovers across the world. He was awarded the Grande Medaille de Vermeil in Paris, and commissioned by the director of the Children's Museum in Washington DC to construct a garden at the museum.
