About Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar
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.

Some of the things and places can't be expressed in words. They must be seen and experienced. This is one among them. If you happen to visit Amritsar Golden temple, then don't forget to visit this place. Because, that is the least that you can do to pay homage and tribute to the people who sacrificed their life for this great country. And if my review is useful, click on LIKE below
I don't remember how many memorial places are in good condition as this one. Just about a kilometre away from Golden Temple, this historical place is a must visit. Boards describing history, various marks giving proofs and the visiting crowd paying tribute - all can be seen once we enter!
A worth visit, if you are visiting Amritsar. A very well care taken of this historical place. All history is well described in Hindi & English. On the entrance names of all who lost their lives is written. When i visited this place it shook my soul. So many innocent peoples lost their lives at this place. When i came near the well in which hundreds of people jumped in the hope of being saved from aimless firing( which is now dried) I feel heavier inside. The bullets mark is still clear on the wall. Jallianwala Bagh is one of most darkest page of india's freedom fight.
A renowned place where many injustics people given there life without fear. A good place to visit clean environment. Museum is good but more improvement needed. Children's are required to visit which will help them to gather information.
Even though this place has a lot of historical importance.. it is nothing more than just a park but you should definitely pay a visit here... It reminds us how we've become the country we are today
