Straight out of the pages of a book on Indian History . Under the orders of General Dyre fire was opened on a civilian crowd .... what remains is the bullet marks , the well where people jumped into to save their lives ... a very significant incident in Indian History but unfortunately as with most other places in India...

a visit to the bagh will leave you chilling to the spine when you actually witness history. the tiny alleys leave you wondering about the people who were trapped inside at the time of the shootout.

Such a lot of history behind this place, I really think it is a must-see for anyone in the area. In true Indian style it is poorly maintained but that shouldn't take away from the significance of it. The old bullet marks and well really hit home the magnitude of the massacre here, and it would be a shame to... More

I will give even 7 stars to this site for its historical significance. But am sorry to note that it is not being properly maintained. The managing body and the visitors both are to be blamed for this state of affairs. Visitors treat it as a picnic spot rather unaware of its history. The managing body also doesn't care less.

The overall upkeep of the place was questionable, and in stark contrast to the Harmandir Sahab Complex. The water fountains were not functioning, the trees and shrubs were in dire need of trimming, the travellers were using the premises as a picnic spot, whereas its such an emotional place that one feels nauseated as seeing it in the shape I...

By the time I entered it was about sunset. however there are not many caretakers inside who can ensure people do not touch or play around with the structure. Needs more care and attention. It is one of the most important sites to maintain.
