The site of one of the bloodiest chapters of India’s independence struggle, Jalliawala Bagh is now a memorial to the innocent lives lost in the massacre. It is one of the most poignant places to visit in Amritsar. The walls still bear the scars from the bullets that didn’t discriminate between men, women and children.
Spend some time in the beautiful garden that surrounds the old buildings. Say a prayer for innocent souls and soak in the peaceful surroundings. Though it invokes feelings of loss and sadness, a visit here will introduce you, first-hand, to an important part of India’s history.
