As you enter Jalianwala Bagh, you should read all plaques relating the history of the place, and follow the signs. By the time you reach the well, you have tears in your eyes, and are cursing the british who could massacre innocent unarmed civilians!

This place reminds you of the British colonial oppression on the Indians. How dreadful it must have been. The place is well maintained and the light and sound program is awesome. Although people say that it is more of a garden, but I appreciate the upkeep of the place. A must visit, when you are at Amritsar.

I wish I had not gone here..... This is history we grow up with as Indians and recollect with grattitude the martyr's sacrifice. Unfortunately, the powers that be have not been able to recreate the magnitude, the spirit or the history of the place. History does not speak to you even though it is our legacy. On the other hand... More

From the time you enter, you don't feel like it was a place of massacre, with its well pruned lawns and a well maintained horticulture. It lacked enough signboards to provide you a background of what evil had happened in this place and wouldn't certainly know its importance in the Indian Independence movement if you hadn't studied it in your...

The stark horror of the mass shooting, and the appalling British reaction to it stands in contrast to the peaceful atmosphere which rules in this small park now, in the Independent Republic of India!

You can skip a visit to this place. Other than the historical significance of this place its just a nice, small and clean garden maintained with memorial for the people who lost their lives there. The visit can be finished in half an hour.

Having read about it all in the History books at school, there is no Indian that does not know about Jallianwala Bagh and its importance in freedom struggle. The heart ponders over what would have happened on that fateful day of 13th April, 1919 when peaceful mob was being mercilessly fired upon. The museum and the photographs put up there... More

The gardens were busy when we visited, and the narrow entrance gave a frightening reminder of how all those people were trapped in what's now referred to as a 'kettle'. 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
