Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar

(4.2/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Jallianwala Bagh and other attractions in Amritsar using our Amritsar travel itinerary maker.

  • Its not something that I should be rating. It's a place where memories lie. My heart goes to all who died there. This will remind us of a difficult time when India wasn't what it is today. Thanks to all the Governments who worked hard to keep this place neat and clean.
  • One should visit this place at least once in a life time. The history witnessed the worst massacre happened at Jallianwalla Baugh on 13-Apr-1919 which happened to be Baishakhi. The blood shed story is definitely spine-chilling. The Baugh (Garden) area is designed in a way that one could literally goes back to that era.
  • Historic place featuring India's freedom movement and the place where jallianwala bagh massacre happened on non violent protestors by british army
  • Place where blood of many sikhs were shed.. Jallian wala bagh....
  • Place which remind us the sacrifices of Indians who sacrifices their live the freedom fight of India. The innocent people killed by Colonel Reginald Dyer and his armed force. This place will always be remembered whenever we remind our freedom . The well in which people jumped is still there and also we can see the bullets marks on the wall. Best time to visit – While the Jallianwala Bagh is open throughout the year, the best time to visit the city of Amritsar is between October and March since the summer months can get excruciatingly hot. When you are visiting the historical memorial, you are likely to be under the open sky and therefore summers are best avoided. In case you do happen to be in the city during the summer months, make sure to visit the attraction after sundown. A Indian must visit this place. Salute to those Freedom fighters. JAI HIND.
