The highlighted bullet marks on the surrounding brickwork, and the huge deep well where so many sought desperate refuge tell their own story. The fact that it is now a... More

Every Indian needs to pay a respect to people of Punjab for the martyrdom. This place is the foundation of India's freedom struggle. The light and sound show in the evening makes you experience the visit as it happened.

This is the site of a terrible tragedy. The gardens seem well looked after and there is a small picture museum in the grounds.

This memorial has a sad story behind it. You can see the bullet marks from the shootings, a museum and a room with some pictures and stories behind it. We couldn't get into the right feeling as the Indian tourists wanted to take pictures with us most of the time. Prepare to be photographed :)
