We walked to Jallianwala Bagh from the Golden Temple in Amritsar on 6-Dec-2018. The street to Jallianwala Bagh is very narrow and full of variety of shops. Though cars can ply here, it is extremely difficult to drive here. Also, there is no parking near Jallianwala Bagh. So, we found it best to walk. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from Golden Temple to Jallianwala Bagh.
There is no entry fee at Jallianwala Bagh.
As I had read in History Books, there is only one entrance and exit at the Jallianwala Bagh and it is very narrow road. This was the street through which the British Tanks had entered the Park to gun down so many Indians.
Inside the Park, they have made a memorial in the center of the Park.
At one corner of the Park is the Martyr’s Well. Many Indians had jumped in this well to give up their lives to avoid getting shot by the British.
The walls where the bullets had struck are preserved. The bullet marks can be seen.
At the entrance of the Park, there is a statue of Shahid Udham Singh. The history is that General Dyer had ordered the firing at the Jallianwala Bagh. After that he was court marshalled. Finding him guilty in the court marshal, General Dyer was sent back to Britain. Shahid Udham Singh managed to reach Britain and there he shot General Dyer. Though he took about 20 years to complete this deed.
