AMRITSAR  
The Citadel of Sikhism

JALIANWALA BAGH MONUMENT

This national monument of supreme historic significance lies in the heart of city and it is very near, say a quarter mile off the Golden Temple. It recalls the monumental folly perpetrated by the British rulers on the ruled the innocent peace-loving citizens of Amristar, and it was in April, 1919. It was then a sprawling garden commonly used for public meetings. This spot where on that fateful day thousands of harmless citizens of all age groups and sexes were shot at ruthlessly by the cruel British officer by name Dyer is held very sacred now, and every tourist and pilgrim crave for a visit during their visit to the city. Though it is now closed on all sides by tall buildings and business establishments, its curiosity as a monument is on the increase. On entering into garden, a tall inverted U shaped column erected on an elevated platform greets our sight, and wrings our homage by its unforgettable past. There are huge halls, whose walls are adorned with the paintings of the scenes of that gruesome event, the sight of which draws tears, and listening to the narration hastens all to the poignant memorial. Free India gave to the martyrs erected on a grand pedestal to offering obeisance. With heavy hearts and tear-stained eyes, the visitors are hurried to the Durga temple, a visit worthy, nay a must for every pilgrim to this city.
