    Jallianwala Bagh -- A tribute to Innocence
    Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar is a place which is worth visiting if you are in Amritsar. This place reminds you of the atrocities we Indians faced during the British Raj ... A memoir for the generations to mourn the state of affairs at that time

    An oasis that has to be seen
    Yes, an oasis - lush green gardens amidst the crazy crowded markets but...this is the site of a terrible tragedy that we all need to be aware of. It is hard to absorb but I am pleased we visited.

    Well maintained historical site close to the Golden Temple
    The Jallianwala Bagh is a free to enter site. It has many small galleries explaining the horrific incident which occurred during British rule. The place is well maintained and there is a light show everyday in the evening around 6pm.

    Learn about the massacre to prevent another one
    This is a lovely place to visit free of charge and details the massacre of Jallianwala Bagh. The indoor exhibits are good are let down by poor projections which could be better if it was projection mapping. Also security staff use their whistle instead of leaving their chair to deal with any visitors. It can get hot outside but there is plenty of shelter. Its surprising to see that before during and after the massacre the authorities passed laws to control people, controlled the press, controlled the meeting up of people and had trials without legal judiciary!

    Excellent
    Excellent way to pay a tribute to the martyrs. The shows projected at each of the galleries gave a clear account of the happenings in the Bagh. The light show started at 7 p.m. as we visited during summer and lasted for around 30 minutes. During winter the timing for the light show varies. It is a very noble service and the security guards are very polite and agile. Respect and admire the way the Bagh has been maintained.

    Experience of jaliya vala bagh
    The Jallianwala Bagh is a very beautiful place, especially because of its history. When you go there, it feels like you are with the people who sacrificed everything for our independence. It is an amazing experience and brings a sense of peace that cannot be expressed in words.

    Historical place
    deeply emotional and somber experience. The memorial site provides visitors with an opportunity to pay their respects to the victims and reflect on the struggle for independence. The museum within the premises displays photographs, artifacts, and documents that further contextualize the historical significance of the massacre.

    Respectful
    A simple, quiet place that feels very respectful. The monument itself is a fitting tribute and is surrounded by beautiful and well kept gardens that have been well thought out and cared for. Best to go with a guide or read up beforehand so you are fully aware of the significance of this.

The Jallianwala Bagh is a public garden walled on all sides, with very narrow entrances. We Indian Authorities are not giving full respects to the Martyrs of Jallianwala Bagh. The garden is very badly maintained. The entrance is very narrow. In front of the entrance the footpath covered by the local business mans & the 75% of the main entrance covered by these local business man’s kiosks. All Indian should remember the freedom fighting of India and The Jallianwala Bagh massacre and my folded handed appeal to the authority please pay full respect to the Martyrs of Jallianwala Bagh and keep the garden as it was in April 1919. The Martyrs' Well, at Jallianwala Bagh has been covered by the authority for revamping where 120 bodies were recovered from this well as per inscription on it. Only Bullet marks on a small wall is open for the travellers to view all other part is very badly covered for revamping. My appeal, Don’t modernize Jallianwala Bagh. We Indian wants to feel the Sacrifices of the Martyrs role in Indian freedom movement, which led to the fall of the British empire 1947.

The bagh is undergoing massive renovation. It is an important monument to visit with family once one is there. It was a bit disappointing that it was not accessible due to the work going on there. It probably shall take about 6 more months before it shall open up for common viewing.

This place has immense historical importance having witnessed a landmark moment in our independence struggle. But as a place of tourist interest or even historical interest for that matter, it is a major let down. A walk around the park takes about 5 minutes with the wall with the actual bullets and the well where the innocents dived into, being chief exhibits. The biggest letdown is the museum which should have been a much more viewable thing wherein guests could spend some time getting to better know important artifacts / stories from the freedom movement. But it is nothing more than a basic gallery. So you visit the Jallianwala Bagh either to pay homage to the shaheeds or because it is a 2 minute walk from the Golden Temple. On its own, its not worth it.

So much is mentioned about this place in history textbooks that one is curious to know and see what it is all about. At the time of our visit renovation work was going on so we were not able to see it properly thus it felt like something was missing. Will definitely want to visit again.

Everything was dug up and the walls were largely covered by construction barriers as they are beautifying the place it seems. No place to sit for even a minute. People standing inside the monument to take pictures. Dust flying due to construction. Only one wall with some bullet marks. No signs or information available.

A trip to Jallianwala Bagh was top.on our Bucket list. But the extended renovation that it was undergoing delayed our plans. We finally managed to fulfill our plans this month.

Since we had not visited the place prior to its renovation it is not possible to compare the present layout with its previous version.

The deathly well which consumed hundreds of innocents who jumped into it to escape the bullets has been given a glass wall around its compound. The walls which bear the bullet marks of that evening have also been barricaded.

In addition to these brick and mortar memories, digital memories in the form of photos, videos and movies are also on display which enhance the emotions associated with this hallowed site. A corner depicting the history of Punjab is displayed.

The narrow alleyway leading to the Bagh has been inscribed with Murals depicting the famous leaders of that era as well as events of that unfortunate afternoon.

However, the washrooms leave a lot to be desired less due to the efforts of the goverment species and more due to the apathy of the visitors.

A visit to the memorial does not leave you satisfied or thrilled. It is not meant to be so. The place is soaked with the blood of atleast a thousand men, women and children as young as a few months.

That is why it was distressing to note the casual attitude with which some of the visitors were clicking selfies with the well or the puckered walks as background.

This garden is a mute testimony not just of our long and eponymous freedom struggle but also of the unfathomable savagery that can exist within humans when absolute power is in their hands and heads.

My "Terrible" rating is a reflection of the poor state of affairs at this historic monument which would otherwise have been rated as Excellent in view of its significance.

Located on the road leading up to the Golden Temple, it is disappointing to find the whole area dug up with no signposts to guide one to the key spots (the famous well) in the Jallianwalla complex.

We could see a few holes in a wall ostensibly these were bullet marks left by the infamous firing ordered by General Dyer.

It would have been best if the construction work had been carried out in phases, ensuring that at any point in time most of the areas were kept accessible for the hundreds of tourists who come in with lots of expectations. And, needless to say, there should have been proper English/Hindi/Punjabi signboards for guidance.

While the govt. agencies will justify their foolhardy actions by citing the long-term benefits of the ongoing work, all would agree that we need to be more sensitive / show more respect to such important monuments.

Please don't waste your time here until the renovation is completed.

The peace u feel in Jallianwala baug is beyond words. Give the history of this place it comes with a lot of nostalgia and patriotism just flows in the veins when one sees the small corridor , the famous well and the bullet hole marks on walls in this place! May they all rest in peace who lost their lives here. But Amritsar has made this place a memorial like no other. Super clean garden, memorials and a museum of old coins , news papers before and during independence and various letters exchanged during the period just add to the historic and deep character of this landmark in world history!

A park, museum, a memorial all in one.
It's free to enter, the museum parts are light-touch but do a good job at explaining the events that led up to the massacre and the massacre itself.

You enter, see the galleries/halls, see the well where people jumped into, see bullet-holed walls, and a monument to the dead.

It's probably not really for kids (some of the museum's galleries), but despite the solemn nature of the park, there are still a lot of families having a day out there taking pictures.

Jallianwala bagh is a must visit for everyone. The place has so much of history and personally for me it was a very emotional moment while being there and going through the details depicted in the different galleries of what ppl went through at this place.
The place is very well maintained. There is a sound and light show in the evening which is worth a watch.
For children it is a worth visiting place to connect them to our history.
