“History Revisited”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

As kids we have all read about the massacre of Jallianwala Bagh. Having visited the same, was like revisiting those words in history book. The narrow lane where fire was opened by soldiers of General Dyer, the well where so many Indians jumped to death to save themselves, the bullet marks and the goriness. The place is decently maintained and it's one place that if given a chance, one must visit.

“Totally Ignored part of History”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

This was one of the most disappointing part of my Amritsar visit. I understand that the history linked to this place. A lot of brave freedom fighters lost their lives at this historic park but the state it is in is nothing but shameful for the administration body that takes care of it. Totally ignored lawns and absolutely no flowers. Even your local society park would look much better.

“Light & Sound Show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

The Garden is fine, just about clean enough. But what blew me away was the Light & Sound show. It is free and very engaging especially if you are an Indian history buff

“Horrible Past Great Tribute”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

Once you are in this place and read about what happened you have to ask yourself how this can happen. It is a great place to stop over on the way to the Golden Temple. That is once you get past all the junk sellers that will barely let you in. Once in you are a little safer from being harassed but know you have to come out eventually. The Gardens are great and the entire story is a great tribute to the people who perished there. Do stop in no cost at all.

“Painful memories of the past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

It is a place where horrible massacre of innocent people took place from the hands of the British
Army. Painful memories come back to our minds. What a shame to the British to have such stone hearted generals in their army. It is a monument very well preserved with the Amarjothi costantly burning to honour the departed souls.
