Any patriot worth their salt will have tears in their eyes at the mention of the unfortunate event that took place at Jallianwala Bagh in 1919. Known as the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre, the killing or fatally wounding over 2000 innocent men, women and children played a pivotal role in India’s struggle for independence from the rule of the British.
This haunting and tragic incident has left behind a few scars, visible even today. Bullet holes on the walls are visible and the Martyr’s Well, people jumped into to save themselves, is still there, although the top is now covered. To honour those who died that day, there an eternal flame of remembrance that burns round the clock, a monument erected in the shape of a flame, a Martyr’s Gallery and a sound and light show at 6 pm every day.

Jallianwala Bagh Reviews & Ratings
The originality of the place is lost. First visit there and all I could see is construction going on and fancy sculptures being erected to mark the massacre. There is only one brick wall that bears the history, the one with bullet marks, and that too seems too less to feel the historic story of that place. As aforementioned, owing to construction going on, the well where people jumped in when Dyer started firing, was out of viewing zone.
Good place. Was under construction on mid of October 2019 Entry gate is good for clicking picture. Inside you can see martyrs well & bullet shot marks . Click a lot of pictures there and read everything written.
There is no entry fee. There was some maintenance work going on around the well, so couldn't see it. The walls having holes of bullets are kept well and intact and are marked so that it can be identified easily. As the maintenance work is in progress and with rain there was lot of mud spreading everywhere. Must visit place if you are visiting Golden Temple.
How can one put star rating to such a historic place? Well, the efforts to preserve the history and dark past of this place is great. Current rennovation efforts which are taking place, hope they bring out more to the venue. Entry is free, and informative displays help connect with the history of massacre.
Great experience. Amazing monument of India which clearly describe the big tragedy happened in past time of British people rules in India. And how major general dyer shoot out blindly and very cruelly on innocent people of India and hundreds of people lost their lives. The bullet marks of British guns are clearly visible till now at there. Everyone should visit this place at least one time in life so he can understand that how cruel was British people were.
