It was a historical place still kindling the freedom movement's burns and an immortal monument of sacrifices of unarmed innocents. No doubt it is kept in such a condition to remember the youth of India to recall the atrocity\ties carried out by an English army officer. The glimpse on the martyr well and the bullet holes made be dizzy. It... More

The attraction remains partially neglected with most visitors just there to talk a stroll, lie around on the lawns and carving out their names on the bark of the trees. The place seems to be less respected for the sanctity and in a very subtle way reduces the importance of the sacrifice of those who laid down their lives for... More

For those who know the Indian history or who have studied this in school and watched films it definitely is very emotional and can relate to it.This place is a memorial to the hundreds of innocent lives lost during India's struggle for freedom. On the Baisakhi of 1919 i.e, 13th April of the year 1919 hundreds of people in peaceful... More

This historic legendary place is so poorly maintained by the government that one feels shame. The park around is more of a love garden for young couple and resting place for tourists who have come to Golden Temple. The place should be preserved and paid entry should be enforced for the maintenance.

Just as you turn right to the golden temple from mc Donald, straight in front of you is a red brick building called jallianwala Baugh. If you follow the narrow entrance and the alley it will lead you to an unkempt garden. This place is a memorial to the hundreds of innocent lives lost during India's struggle for freedom. We... More

Jallianwala Bagh is situated at a walking distance of 2 mins from the Golden Temple. Stories from your history book seem to come to life right from the moment you enter the narrow gates of the Jallianbagh garden. 13th April 1919 was a dark day in Indian history and this ground stood a silent witness to the bloody massacre here...
