About Jallianwala Bagh Massacre (Punjab)

Jallianwala Bagh is one of the most important historical places in India. Located in the holy city of Amritsar, Jallianwala Bagh is just a walking distance from the sacred Harmandir Sahib/ Golden Temple. Jallianwala Bagh Massacre took place on April 13, 1919. In this incident British army opened fire against a large number of unarmed Indians in Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar, hundreds of people lost their lives and many people were injured in this brutal attack. The ghastly incident still remains in the hearts of millions of Indians even after 100 years of Jallianwala Bagh Massacre. This massacre was a turning point in Indian history and led to many Satyagrahis movement. The Jallianwala Bagh Massacre shook the entire country and many people came out to participate in the freedom fight. 

The heart-wrenching history of Jallianwala Bagh Amritsar dates back to the year 1919 when India was under British rule. It was the 13th of April, the day of Vaisakhi (birth of Khalsa) when thousands of people including Sikhs, Hindus, and Muslims had gathered at the Jallianwala Bagh to commemorate the day on which Shri Guru Gobind Singh founded the Khalsa Panth. None of the people that they were soon to become victims of one of the most cruel mascaras in the history of mankind.

Jallianwala Bagh Massacre

General Dyer, along with his armed troops, attacked Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar, killing thousands of people within minutes. Many were killed by the bullets fired at them while some jumped into a well to avoid dying from at the hands of Britishers. The well is now known as ‘Martyr’s Well’, and one can still spot bullet holes in the walls of the complex. The dire Jallianwala Bagh incident shook the whole country and led to the Non-cooperation Movement.

The Jallianwala Bagh tragedy that led to the killing of thousands of unarmed, defenseless, and innocent Indians is considered to be one of the darkest parts of Indian history. The flame of the immortal still glows inside the garden premises to commemorate the sacrifices of the martyrs and to ensure that the flame of Jallianwala Bagh history keeps glowing till eternity.

Facts About Jallianwala Bagh Massacre

The large gathering at Jallianwala Bagh on the day of massacre was to celebrate Baisakhi, one of the major festivals of Punjab. The bagh had only one exit, which was closed during the attack which led to high casualities. It is also said that firings stopped only after the British army ran out of ammunition. Jallianwala Bagh Massacre is also called as Amritsar Massacre. 

While in Amritsar, one should definitely visit the Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar so that sacrifices of our freedom fighters are not forgotten, and the history is passed from generation to generation.

    Nisha's 9 days trip to Himachal

    My trip started with a bang had a great experience in manali dharmshala n dalhousie with good hotels good food but must say my end of the day trip ruined it all bcuz of this pathetic hotel Puri palace in Amritsar Had a very bad experience in Amritsar due to hotel rooms ...this hotel don't even deserve 1 star to be honest....Very small n unmannered rooms...AC not working...the worst was the bathroom...it was smelly n stinky ....toilet seat looked like was not cleaned from Soo many days toilet seats look pathetic horrible..even public toilet rooms are far more better than their toilets n bathrooms. The. Comes the food part we reached hotel late in evening of course we were too tired when we expect nothing but a better food instead we were served cold chilled fried rice with chilled cold soup n manchurian that too cold n there was Roti with these Chinese dinner menu when we asked how to have Roti we were said to have it with their chilled soup or chilled Manchurian without chicken.. . pathetic Service .... Amritsar Hotel location not at all safe n secure too untidy n dirty n specially locality is unsafe for girls. ..This last destination ruined my Amritsar Trip .....Rest all I was happy with my trip but just the last one... I'd only like to suggest here is kindly agents do verify with the hotel actual images n proper verification of hotel rooms u provide...last day of my trip made is sad as we were promised excellent hotel n rooms on last day of trip as it was just a 1 night stay in Amritsar but then all these happened... Manali Rohtang Pass n Khajjar Paragliding was my best experience

    Overall trip was great, few things which could have made the trip awesome. Travel agent - was expecting calls in between the trips to ask about the trip progress. Hotesls - Shimla and Amritsar hotels were ok. Both the hotels water problem in the morning. Grand galaxy was allocated to me in Amritsar however hotel staff changed that to Hollywood heights on arrival. Experience with Hollywood heights was not good at all. Cab and driver - really happy with both.

    An Khaleeq

    Kabul

    An's 10 days trip to Himachal

    The overall trip could have been better had the agency taken care of some small things. 1. At two of the booked hotels, Wistling Pine in Shimla and Savers Park in Amritsar were had been stopped for about 30 minutes or so when checking out stating that the payments were not made and that we had to pay them. It was very inconvenient. 2. We didn't get to see a few places promised in the final voucher. First, we got to Kullu in the evening and the driver stopped at a shop and said that if we wanted to buy clothes we had about 30 minutes. He said we will not visit Kullu again. So we didn't see Kullu at all. Second, we didn't visit Kasole at all. The driver said he will see if the roads to Kasole were open, he will take us. But he didn't take us there. I know for sure that the roads were open. I strongly believe he wanted to get to Dharamshala earlier so he skipped that. Third, the driver skipped all the sightseeing in Dalhousie saying that they are 50 to 60 km away so we cannot visit them. 3. When we asked for some changes in the hotel reservations, although the request being 3 days in advance, it was denied stating that the changes could not be made. 4. When we would asked the driver to take us to a near by mall or shopping, he declined the request stating the car has a gps and that hey is not allowed to. 5. At most of the hotels, we missed the breakfast because the driver wanted to leave early for the next destination.

    Kyph's 12 days trip to Kashmir

    We booked Young Bombay Tours & Travel for our Amritsar and Jammu-Kashmir trip. The arrangements & hotel booking done were really great. As it was 11 days trip, the iteneary was very well planned & budgeted. Not a single day we felt hectic, it was organised in such a way. Commendable job done by Zaara & her team. All the drivers we met during our trip were wonderful people. They supported us in every way. Must mention Burhan bhai & Zahoor bhai whom we met for Kashmir journey. The places which we visited in Kashmir were so breath taking that it really cannot be mentioned in words. Thank you Young Bombay for such a beautiful & memorable trip. It is really difficult to list the best memories of the trip beacuse the complete trip itself was beautiful. The freezing temperature & the view of snow all over at Gulmarg was completely mesmerizing.
