The caretakers of Rock Garden are planning to open Rock Garden in the night or till late evening which will boost tourism because in summers it’s really hard to explore such a big garden in hot daylight. But still, there is no confirmation yet because to light up the entire Rock Garden with LED lights will cost around 5 crore INR
These late evening visiting hours will not only boost tourism but will make Rock garden a favorite spot for city residents who would wish to visit it to see the illumination.
But arranging such huge money is not an easy job especially when the cost of Rock Garden ticket is Rs. 20 Per Adult and Rs. 10 for Child. So, fingers crossed maybe soon you will be able to enter rock garden in late evening.
