To see the spot in our relatively recent history where a large group of peaceful protesters were killed by the British is indeed a sobering spot. Very worthwhile to get an understanding of Punjabi history. Recommend.

A must go place for every visitor. Visit was more heart touching than I thought. It brings back sad memories, but a salute to those who stood up for breath of freedom.

The bagh is nice but a sad place to visit as one sees the marks of bullets that were fired on the people years ago. The government has preserved and covered the spots very well for one to see it and not harm it. The well is also there where people were thrown during the firing. It was crowded place.... More
