Jallianwala Bagh is a public gardens which commemorates a massacre which took place on April 13th 1919. At a time of civil unrest, a large number of people gathered in the gardens to celebrate the festival of Baisakhi, one of the holiest days in the Sikh calendar. Mistaking the revelers with their picnics for a political rabble, Brigadier General Reginald Dyer took soldiers into the gardens where they fired off 1650 rounds of ammunition killing hundreds and injuring many more. Today the Jallianwala Bagh is both a peaceful public space and a moving testament to the past. There is a small museum to the dead which records the stories of people caught up in the killing and contains portraits and paintings of the scene. The Martyrs Well in which scores of people threw themselves preferring to drown than face the bullets is now covered over. Visitors can also see walls pock-marked with bullet holes, an eternal flame to commemorate the deaths and a large red sandstone monument. The gardens are a few hundred meters from the Golden Temple and are open daily, closing at dusk. Entrance is free.
