“sentimental place”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

this is the place where people were shot dead by bullets and were given no escape. so its gives a sentimental feeling to go around the place see well/holes of bullet in walls/ paintings etc, but still its a must watch to understand what happened at this place

“A moving visit for any Indian”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

...and also for ANY sane, peace-loving person. Takes you back to the tragic massacre of unarmed Indians by a British "mad-man" General during the British Raj, who, instead of being court-martialled, was knighted by the British. Bullet marks from the massacre are displayed and marked on the walls.

A very moving experience. Lots of people but a very interesting part of Indian history. Busy on Sundays.

“Trivilises”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Its hard to describe the importance of this particular massacre; it defined much of the colonial and imperial history, not just of India but of other countries. Over a thousand people died here. But as a place of solemn and important remembrance, the site is now a pathetic mix up of what is wrong with India. A tree that once had bullet holes in it, is now carved out with assorted people's names. The lake at the monument has no water, and there is no coherent display to put the scene into a context. The captions with the exhibits are almost impossible to read. Try reading the Tagore statement - it is impossible. Mahatma Gandhi's statement on the need for a memorial can be read - and in reading it you can see the custodians of Jallainwala Bagh have completely failed... This is hallowed ground,turned into some kind of gathering spot for lovers and people who seem ever keen to carve their name upon other people's history. India should feel shame for what is done here.
