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.
An attraction with a highly significant importance in the Indian history, the Jallianwala Bagh is a place where even today the echoes of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre can be heard, running a chill down your spine.

If you are in Amritsar, this place worth a visit considering the history attached to it. Decently maintained. The entry gate is from the complex outside golden temple. Walking distance from car parking and golden temple. Not sure of the toilets as I could see the sign but could not locate them. You can see the the memorial, the well, the bullet marks, the shrubs cut in the shape of gun men.
Simply Excellent . I loved the big market & how calm it is . It was very busy yet so calm enjoyed every moment of it. Shopped like a shopaholic Went to Gold Temple & worshipped like a human. Beautiful place would love to visit again.
Jallianwala Bagh is a place of historic relevance and I feel everyone must know about the event that shook the entire nation. The bullet marks can still be seen on those walls and the well has an eerie vibe to it which I could feel when I looked down in it. The place is well constructed. The entry is through a narrow street which then takes you to a beautifully made structure. There's park and fountains adding to the scenic value.
One of the major sites of the Indian struggle for Independence, the Jallianwala Bagh is a monument of National importance. It was here that the British officials opened fire on a rather peaceful Indian crowd including women and children. The garden is spread across an area of 6.5 acres and still contains several bullet marks left by the British.
When I was 12 year old and reading about Jallianwala Bagh in history book on that day I had decided someday one day I would definitely visit n finally my dream came true.. Below are my review comments and places to visit near by, It is situated near by Golden Temple Amritsar. You can see the bullet marks on the wall. The martyrs well will tell you about what happened in the past. This is the Place where you would feel patriotic, sympathetic as well as motivated. There is a beautiful park where you can sit peacefully and feel the value of freedom. There are so many statues of soldiers holding their rifles in different poses, all made up of grass and very beautifully designed n maintained. Place is very beautifully maintained by staff n no entry fee as well. If you are interested to know more in detail about Indian history and scarifices done by people from both the countries during partition then my suggestion is to please visit Partition Museum. It's also located near by Jallianwala Bagh. Minimal entry fee for museum is around 10 rupee per person and strictly No Photography.. One day is enough to visit 3 places completely. Finally Don't miss to watch small movies in Golden temple's basement Jallianwala gate, which is about Amritsar, Golden temple, Sikh kingdoms n their humanity.
