#Garden, #Landmark, #Must See
Visit the memorial garden of Jallianwala Bagh, a public park that houses the monument to the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre, when British forces opened fire on unarmed civilians celebrating the Punjabi new year. The memorial was established in 1951 by the Indian government, to serve as a somber reminder of the tragedy in which an estimated 1,000 people lost their lives. You can still view numerous bullet marks on the preserved walls of the site, a reminder that a number of people also drowned while trying to escape the bullets.

  • Painstakingly recreated by Richard Attenborough in his film “Ghandi”, this is the site of the murder of 100s of Indian civilians in April 1919. Look for the bullet holes in the perimeter walls.  more »

  • Some of the things and places can't be expressed in words. They must be seen and experienced. This is one among them. If you happen to visit Amritsar Golden temple, then don't forget to visit this place. Because, that is the least that you can do to pay homage and tribute to the people who sacrificed their life for this great country. And if my review is useful, click on LIKE below
  • I don't remember how many memorial places are in good condition as this one. Just about a kilometre away from Golden Temple, this historical place is a must visit. Boards describing history, various marks giving proofs and the visiting crowd paying tribute - all can be seen once we enter!
  • The place has it's own reputation in Amritsar. There is no ticket required to enter the place. It is a beautiful place and well maintained. Generally very crowded during the day time. It is ideal to visit in the morning during it's opening time. Most of them click pictures here and get back. You don't want more than 30 min in this place.
  • Memories of freedom fighters. I visited here with my friend. When you will enter from the gate. There is gate from where the cruel General Dyer enters with his soldier. He give order to fired on the unarmed protesters. The sign of the bullets which hits the wall are still there. There is also a well in which the some people jumped to safe them from bullets. There is a small museums is also there. It contains the pictures. I feel amazing to visit the Jallianwala Bagh.
  • Should visit once, if you visit Amritsar. It's a great place for kids. They enjoy a late. Their is a Shaheed Jyoti which is always lighted 24 hours a day. Management should increase ticket price to keep this historical l piece more better in years to come. A must watch.
