GGDSD Foldscope Team @Japanese garden

  • Samriti Dhawan

On the 2nd – Day of the workshop on Foldscope @GGDSD College, Chandigarh, a visit to Japanese Garden, Chandigarh was organized on 10th October, 2018. The garden spreads over an area of 13 acres and has been developed in two phases. An underground 100-foot-long tunnel connects the two phases of the garden.The garden has unique features like Japanese tower, Stone  lanterns, Tea house, Pagoda huts and Japanese styled river concepts to enhance the entity of this garden. Other special features include miniature styled hills, small Islands, water features, streams, artistic bridges, stones, rocks etc. – a pathora of Japanese architecture. The ambience of the garden is further enhanced with the flowering trees, Pines and Bamboos. Students collected various samples from garden for foldscopy.

The selection of suitable trees and planting at important places has played a key major role in the Japanese style garden with an objective to have a serene and peaceful environment for meditation and solitude.  We could not see much visitors in phase-I, but in phase-II which had more sitting area, a lot of visitors were present.
