This special park is where the locals meet for festivities and has a troubled history as it was where a deadly massacre took place which killed thousands of locals, including families, trapped by high walls and fences as the British army opened fire without warning on the Sikh new year day. I was surprised and happy, being from the UK... More

The originality of the place is lost & all you find is a garden through out. Guess they should have preserved the bullet marks & all

It's just a quick visit monument. The well described in our history books is closed and you will find bullet marks on the wall.

A place draped in local culture and history. Very emotional place for many from Punjab or originally from Punjab.

We had this on our list of sites to visit when we were in Amritsar. We stumbled on it by accident, when one of us exclaimed as we strolled down the street. "My gosh, there it is." The calmness of the park, although it was crowded as most places are, is misleading when one understands the tragedy of what happened... More

If you're visiting India and have seen all the amazing architectural feats this will be a little different. This is a historical landmark for Sikh people that were assassinated by the British. It is a beautiful garden but also a solemn place of great importance.

Not actually knowing what this site was until I visited it, I felt honored to be there and to pay respect to they peaceful people who were tragically taken that day. To wonder how one man can belive what he did was right is beyond me. To walk though the area, seeing and reading about what happened that day had... More

It has now been re-done and is a changed place from when i visited 10 years back. It now has a small museum which has letters and newspapers etc of pre -independence India. The bullets marks are shown and rounded off in the wall protected by a glass fence. It is now better than ever and a must visit for... More

History buffs would be highly recommended to visit the Jalianwala Baug, the site of the massacre of hundreds of innocents in the year 1919. Now a memorial to those who fell on that day, the complex also has a museum which describes the events that unfolded that day plus accounts of some survivors.A sobering visit that reminds us of the...
