A sobering experience for a British visitor. Part of the Empire rule which should never be forgotten

If you read about the events of 1919 before you go, you cannot fail to be moved by this memorial garden with the sculptured bushes in the shape of a soldier firing and the imposing memorial.

Its well maintained. Nice small place with garden and walls having bullet marks. There is a light show in evening. There is nothing exciting nor does it bring forth any emotions. Can skip this.

It was a historical place still kindling the freedom movement's burns and an immortal monument of sacrifices of unarmed innocents. No doubt it is kept in such a condition to remember the youth of India to recall the atrocity\ties carried out by an English army officer. The glimpse on the martyr well and the bullet holes made be dizzy. It... More
