Jallianwala Bagh Martyr's Memorial

Jallianwala Bagh Martyr's Memorial, located near the Golden Temple at Amristar, is a historical monument directly associated with the glorious freedom struggle of India. This site witnessed the massacre of over 2000 innocent people by the British on 13th April 1919. These innocent people, who had gathered for a peaceful meeting in connection with the freedom struggle, were shot dead by the British troops commanded by General Dyer. Erected in the shape of the eternal flame of liberty, Jallianwala Bagh Martyr's Memorial remains a permanent tribute to the patriots who lost their lives. This memorial was visited and wreathed by Queen Elizabeth and her husband in 1977.
