Jallianwala Bagh is located at a stones throw from Golden
Temple. It is a witness of the tragedy called Jallianwala
Bagh Massacre. As the history goes, during the time of freedom
struggle, when Mangal Pandey blew the bugle for commencing
the struggle for independence, General Dyer made a law that
no Indian will be allowed to hold gatherings or processions.
On 13 April 1919, Baisakhi Day, thousands of Punjabis gathered
from nearby places to celebrate the festival. As the communication
system was underdeveloped at that time, they were not informed
regarding this law. Thinking it as a violation of the law,
General Dyer entered in the Park with his troops and open
fired on all the innocent men women and children present there.
Some people were shot dead, some were wounded, and a majority
of the people tried to jump in the well to escape the death
form the hands of foreign power. There is no accurate record
of the number of people died and wounded.
