Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar

#1 of 22 in Parks in Punjab
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.

  • 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.
  • A Place, now become a garden or Visiting place for tourists. Located Close to Golden Temple. It Contain a Long Oval Shape Building with Flaming Torch. Water well now covered. Arrangement for Music Lover to enjoying beautiful evening music on Loud Speakers in soft flow. Parking is available just 500meter away from here. Lots of eating place available near to it like local eating point or subway, McDonald, Chocolate House etc. Religion literature also available.... It's Memorial Place to have sweet memories forever.
  • Well maintained place. One can locate the exact bullet shot on the walls. They arrange a small gallery having rare newspaper cutting of that time about this incident. So overall it is a good historical place to visit
  • Must go place....its just a journey into the history. One will get nostalgic knowing about the sufferings of the people under colonial India.... Must spare some time to visit the museum. One can spend an entire winter afternoon here.... The recent face-lift of the area....the heritage walk...is unbelievably pleasant.
  • The place that stood for more than a thousand sacrifices is just a stone's throw away from Golden Temple. This places signifies for all those great souls who stood against the law and dreamt of freedom that we are experiencing now. Every monument here shouts a painful history that this place went through. The bullet marks on the wall still seem so fresh and the dent will remain throughout history. The well where hundreds jumped is now dry,but if you just sit beside it and think of the moment that this monument went through you'll understand the significance. Such a historical place.

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.
