This peaceful park, the site of one of the worst atrocities the British committed in India, is a memorial to the hundreds of victims who died here when British troops, under the command of one Brigadier General R.E.H. Dyer, fired innumerous rounds into an unarmed crowd of protesters. The victims are remembered for sacrificing their lives for Indian independence. As... More

Jallianwala Bagh is a grim reminder of the worst massacres that took place on Indian soil during the freedom struggle. The place holds a very important position in India's history and is a "must visit'' place in Amritsar. It is located within walking distance from the Golden Temple and has very stringent security procedures.The moment you walk into this "bagh",... More

Well it turned out to be a lil disappointing as it seemed to be tucked away in a busy market place. Locals ogling at the women visiting did not help also. The museum so to speak and the well where many jumped to save their lives but died any ways was covered with a fence which was obviously not cleaned... More

We have always visited the place whenever we come to this place . it gives me the past vibes of history when we look onto the walls with all the bullet holes . Love the place . Makes us realise where we come from .

You feel a feeling of getting choked up when you look at the bullet marks on the walls - recalling the ghastly misdeed of a very stupid officer who must have lost his senses. Pray for the martyrs and also for that suffering soul who ordered the holocaust.

Jallianwala Bagh is a garden site of Jallianwala Bagh Massacre that is located close to the Golden Temple Complex. This public garden houses a memorial, which was established in 1951, to pay homage to the thousands of people, who were killed in the incident. Govt has preserved & managed the site very well. Clean and well maintained. There is a... More

Quiet place, unfortunately has some sad past. A nice park in the middle where people are resting, bullet marks on the wall to remind us of the massacre done back in the time. Interesting to see...

The stories we have read about the place, it doesn't come through, as the place has become a park . The museum is also not of the standard it should be. The walk to the place is also through a very crowded location and not well maintained either.
