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

It is a place where the incident of gun firing over innocent INDIANS took place by then british rule long back in 1919.

A beautiful park very near to golden temple, you access through a narrow lane. It is hard to realized that a massacre took place in this very same place less than a century ago.
