Its amazing because nothing else can touch your heart so closely as the realization of death of thousands of innocent people inside that Bagh or Park. You feel so much more responsible towards your nation once you are inside!

You come here and this place makes you feel what it used to be per-independence. I had read, heard about it many times, but feeling is all together a different feeling. One can see the marks of the bullet fired, the well which was the only escape to bullet.The Garden is maintained okay.The small mesuem inside was informative and inspiring.... More

Yes, that was my only natural reaction on entering this sacred place - bow in respect. A short walk through the bustling bazaar & one enters the nondescript gate to the Bagh & is transported to a time-wrap. For most of us, the firing ordered by Gen. Dyer & its brutality was captured by Attenborough's ''Gandhi". One is hushed into... More

Jallianwala Bagh was a black memory over indian independence. This places stands as testament to the troubles and lives lost over freedom struggle. Please avoid visiting during hot day times.

It is a park now, but really very well maintained and kept. Its design inspires patriotism and its place in history. There is no way that you can stand there and not feel the palpitation of the people massacred there. It was very moving for me. A must visit.

We visited Jallianwala Bagh yesterday and were utterly disappointed at the entrance itself. The entrance is flocked by hawkers and drivers making a place a mess by trying to get passengers for the border and other places. Jallianwala bagh although has a historical pull, but if you look at the management, its disappointing. Same is the case when you enter... More

This is situated very close to Golden Temple.If you come from the North side of the Golden Temple it is only a 2 minute’s walk straight from the temple at the right side.Enter the bagh through a narrow lane at the end of which Dyer ordered for firing.Walk around the bagh and realize the sacrifice given by our great martyrs...

Go only if you care about struggle for India's independence from the British Raj. Not much else to do here, except respect people who are genuinely visiting to see where a historic British/ Indian/ Sikh event took place. Make sure you only pay 10 Indian rupees to ricksha wallahs, check before boarding.
