Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Amritsar

The area of Amritsar that surrounds the Golden Temple can be an entertaining, enriching, and chaotic place to stay. A number of budget and mid-range hotels and hostels sit on the narrow streets here, providing decent rooms and some shared lodgings for pilgrims and tourists alike. The more upmarket and spacious options largely lie to the north. Hall Road offers plenty of hotels and hostels, while the most luxurious options sit to the north of the train station, primarily along Queens Road.

  • Beautiful place and hardening reminder of the history here. You can really feel it when your in there. The hardens have been kept well and it is very informative. It's a humbling experience and I would recommend that you see and understand the struggles of India under British rule
  • A lovely place with soothing atmosphere! Travellers from different parts of country visit here! The famous massacre which left so many dead and the death well attracts foreigners from united kingdom as well as different parts of world! Overall wonderful sculpture and a beautiful garden! U get to see bullet marks too!
  • If you know the importance of this place in the Indian History and if you wish to pay homage to the Indian Martyrs who lost their life's then this place is must. You can see the bullet marks on the wall and there is a small museum which gives us more details about the massacre. For people who just want to visit monuments then this place offer nothing much. But i recommend the younger ones to visit and know what importance it is in our history.
  • One of the major sites of the Indian struggle for Independence, the Jallianwala Bagh is a monument of National importance. It was here that the British officials opened fire on a rather peaceful Indian crowd including women and children. The garden is spread across an area of 6.5 acres and still contains several bullet marks left by the British.
  • A historic place..... the garden is so beautiful, in the middle of which is a big flame - shaped memorial in memory of the martyrs. In one side of the garden are a few figures of the Britishers( massacreing the people at the gathering) made by cutting plants into that shape, and in another side, there are beautiful flowering plants. In the museum, there is information on many revolutionaries.
