One can see the narrow entrance, bullet holes, point from where firing began.everything is well marked and history illustrated nicely inside the memorial. One can view... More

This is a very tranquil area in a mad city. The museum part is well worth visiting first to get a background of what went on and the gardens are very nice just to stroll around. It is a very thoughtful and interesting place.

Very well decorated. The histrory is well enscripted everywhere for the knowledge of the Kids.The small meuseum is well maintained, and the ashes of Udham Singh, the killer of General Dyer is a big attraction. The bullet marks are very well maintained for nearly 100 years, and do also the Martyrs Well.

Though the place is not in it's original shape anymore, there are a few walls where you can still see the bullet marks. The entire place has been renovated with red stone pathways, fountains and lush green gardens. So, it doesn't really give you a historic feel right away but reading all the articles and stories published at the entrance... More
