About Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar

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.  

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.

General Dyer, along with his armed troops, attacked Jallianwala Bagh, 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, defenceless, 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.

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