Another important tourist place in Amritsar is the Jallianwala Bagh. Now serving as a public park, and a massacre memorial, this place has a dark history attached to it which dates back to the period of British rule in India. On 13th April, 1919, General Colonel Reginald Dyer, along with his troops, opened fire on public in Jallianwala Bagh, killing thousands of innocent people. One can still spot bullet holes on the walls of the memorial.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Hotel Services was poor. I booked hotel with Heating. But when i checked in i was forced to but heater at extra cost. The same was included in our quote. Other than this hotel was good with beautiful view. Food was good. We had booked two innova cars. One driver was very rude and he started arguing with everything us. I payed extra for night depature from Manali. However cab driver stopped the car midway at punjab and he started sleeping there. We slept for about 4 hours in car irself. Then he dropped at hotel the final and he went off. He even took the other driver who was good along with him. My final drop was at airport as per the quote. I need to thank the travel agent here who arranged the alternate cab in short span of time and he dropped us at airport. Travel agent Mr Pawan was very good. He was so kind and generous that he always supported wherever we were stuck. And finally he arranged an alternate cab for dropping us at airport.

      A nice holiday to Manali... Transportation from Delhi was a little hectic... not a big problem though... The third day sightseeing was a disappointment... On reviewing now, it feels that we could have a better itinery if we had done some pre research online.. Travel agent services were good.. Hotel Snow country was fine..Cab driver was a nice Punjabi man.. went to his house in Punjab and had a cup of tea on our return to Delhi... Gulaba was the finest part of the trip.. Looking for more trips with travel triangle...

      So our trip was arranged by Vaishnaviji from Shoes on loose , she was calm patient and approachable for all our queries. All the hotels were really great especially the Lotus inn river in Manali was amazing the View from our room was breath taking and the hotel staff was very polite, helpful. The food was best part especially the dinner is what we enjoyed the most . However the cake they served for our honeymoon special was crappy rest all was amazing. A special thank to our friendly guide / Driver /friend Balbir singh ji(8920522756). We enjoyed his company and made our travel real fun. Thank you Travel triangle for getting in touch with Shoes on loose, who made our honeymoon memorable. Please do ask for Balbir singh ji(8920522756) if you need smooth transport in Himachal - Delhi -Chandigarh - Punjab. He is the best out there.
