The most holy and revered destination for Sikh religion, Amritsar, is also a popular name in the chapters of Indian history. Both history and spirituality are intertwined along the walls of Amritsar that pull in enthusiastic travellers from round the world. While talking about Amritsar's history, the first thing we can recollect is the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre of 1919 that brutally killed around 1,000 civilians. Since then the area has been preserved as a fatal yet memorable land, which was turned into a public garden as a token of national importance in 1951 by the Government of India. The garden also houses a memorial to commemorate the fatal incident that took lives of many including women and children, on the occasion of Punjabi New Year.

Jallianwala Bagh is spread over an area of 6.5-acre right in the heart of Amritsar city. It enjoys close proximity to the Golden Temple, one of the holiest shrines of India and is visited by thousands of enthusiastic travellers every day. Few architectural significance of Jallianwala Bagh that retains the same position since the past are:

  • it is bounded by all sides with towering walls, houses and buildings,
  • there are few narrow entrances to the main garden area, many of which are locked till date and
  • a solitary well inside the bagh that was a strong evidence to the shooting scenario is still a point of utmost importance.
A visit to the Golden City is best accompanied by a historical day trip to Jallianwala Bagh, which in turn promises to leave visitors speechless with its scary yet unbeatable history.
