We had so much fun. There was a crowd of thousands of people and should be very much in advance. There are also many controls but worth it. And 'the only open border between India and Pakistan It 'an incredible sight. There are two amphitheaters, one in the Pakistani side and the other side in the Indian. 17:00 Hrs begins... More

Local people strolling around and giving out lovely smiles which make you feel like at home are just... More

Jallianwala Bagh is free and open all seven days. If you have read about this in history, do go and see it youself. The place is not very well maintained and people are sleeping inside, not knowing the historic importance.

A place rich and of utmost historical significance. Visit and see what is done to the heroes when they become one. Near to Golden Temple, worth to visit at least once. Thanks

You should know your history. A must visit place , with bullet marks the light and sound show in the evening truly takes you in the era where it all happened.

No guided tours, not much to see, just do what the rest of them were doing: walk around and straight back out.

Though it makes to feel sad, but it is required to have this feeling and understand what might have happened on that sad day. The park is maintained well. Unfortunately on our visit the Light and Sound show was not there. But the stories make you think and feel grateful for so many people who laid down their lives for... More
