On 16th January 2022 in the morning we hired a auto and went to Jahajghar, a huge market where you can get all second hand car accessories and parts. We were searching for second hand gear box for our Skoda car which was in a Dubai Motor garaj in Jammu. After returning from Jahajghar we had lunch and went to Jallianwala Baug. At the entrance there is Amar Jyoti (eternal flame), inside Martyr's Memorial,
Jallianwala Bagh Massacre also called Massacre of Amritsar, incident on April 13, 1919, in which British troops fired on a large crowd of unarmed Indians (civilians) in an open space in Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar in the Punjab region killing several hundred people and wounding many hundreds more. The shooting lasted about ten minutes. It marked a turning point in India’s modern history, in that it left a permanent scar on Indo-British relations.
It reminds British Rule of India and sacrificed given by people in Indian war of independence. It is well maintained historic monument and with the images, audio and video, provided the details of the horrific experience faced by people during the freedom struggle. After seeing the well in which people jumped to save their lives but did not succeed and the bullet marks in the walls felt very very sorry. The 7-acre site houses a museum, gallery and several memorial structures. It is managed by the Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial Trust. It was renovated between 2019 and 2021.
Jallianwala baug is very near to Golden temple and its a big Garden, anybody can visit both places in single visit. There is no entry fees for visiting Golden Temple and Jallianwala bag as well.
