Somber mood, the feeling of going back to the tragic event and imagining how it was,
Gave goosebumps. A salute to our people who only desired and deserved a peaceful life

Abyss of Humaneness

A trip to Jallianwala Bagh was top.on our Bucket list. But the extended renovation that it was undergoing delayed our plans. We finally managed to fulfill our plans this month.

Since we had not visited the place prior to its renovation it is not possible to compare the present layout with its previous version.

The deathly well which consumed hundreds of innocents who jumped into it to escape the bullets has been given a glass wall around its compound. The walls which bear the bullet marks of that evening have also been barricaded.

In addition to these brick and mortar memories, digital memories in the form of photos, videos and movies are also on display which enhance the emotions associated with this hallowed site. A corner depicting the history of Punjab is displayed.

The narrow alleyway leading to the Bagh has been inscribed with Murals depicting the famous leaders of that era as well as events of that unfortunate afternoon.

However, the washrooms leave a lot to be desired less due to the efforts of the goverment species and more due to the apathy of the visitors.

A visit to the memorial does not leave you satisfied or thrilled. It is not meant to be so. The place is soaked with the blood of atleast a thousand men, women and children as young as a few months.

That is why it was distressing to note the casual attitude with which some of the visitors were clicking selfies with the well or the puckered walks as background.

This garden is a mute testimony not just of our long and eponymous freedom struggle but also of the unfathomable savagery that can exist within humans when absolute power is in their hands and heads.

Visit to feel the History

Jallianwala Bagh is a historic garden and ‘memorial of national importance’ in Amritsar, India, preserved in the memory of those wounded and killed in the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre that occurred on the site on the festival of Baisakhi, 13 April 1919.

It houses a museum, gallery and a number of memorial structures. The Garden is pretty well maintained but the Museum has been cramply built for a such a Historic place.

All in all visiting Golden Temple this is a place to gotto visit, its an experience in itself.

Piece of History
Feb 2021
Located very near to Golden Temple this place itself is a piece of history. There is a well in which hundreds of innocent people jumped while trying to flee, there are bullet marks which can be seen on the walls, the various places from where the firing took place are marked and there is a small museum. A memorial has also been built in honour of the martyrs. Must visit place in Amritsar.

Patriotic, peaceful and surreal

The peace u feel in Jallianwala baug is beyond words. Give the history of this place it comes with a lot of nostalgia and patriotism just flows in the veins when one sees the small corridor , the famous well and the bullet hole marks on walls in this place! May they all rest in peace who lost their lives here. But Amritsar has made this place a memorial like no other. Super clean garden, memorials and a museum of old coins , news papers before and during independence and various letters exchanged during the period just add to the historic and deep character of this landmark in world history!

The place is under renovation and we reached in the evening. Could get a glimpse of the memorial which is visible from outside. The place has historical importance and it is told that bullet marks are still visible at many places.

Martyrs Remembrance

This place is under rennovation , but the entry is free.
It is in the viscinity of Golden temple comlex.
This place is known for the historical importance of Massacre done by Acting General Mr. Reginald Dier before indepencence in 1919.
The grden still have the bullets marked which were fired during the massacre and they are well restored by the authority.
The Bagh (garden) also has the well in which hundreds of innocent people jumped who tried to flee.
Its a symbol of freedom fighter movement in India.
Must visit sightseeing when around Amritsar
