    Emotional and Historical

    by mukhtar3 Written Apr 14, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is one thing that stands out in history of India that is the Jalliyan Wala Bhag massacre on 13th April 1919. This was a violent attack order by Brigadier-General Reginald Dwyer where 1650 rounds were fired at unarmed Indian citizens. This was thought to be the event which lead to the end of British rule in India.

    It is worth visiting to understand the history fully. It is a very emotional and upsetting but yet it is a place beautiful erected to remember those who died in this horrific event in the Jalliyan Wala Bhag on 13 April 1919.

    Harmandar Sahib, Darbar Sahib or The Golden Temple

    The one main thing which is a must see when visiting Punjab is the Golden Temple. It has many different names Harmandar Sahib, Darbar Sahib and the one which is well know the Golden Temple. The Golden Temple has 4 entrances which represents that the temple is open for all from every corner of the world.

    The Golden Temples dome is covered in pure gold it is one of the most tranquil places. It is one of the most amazing places around. Once you walk in you would not want to leave. It would also be great to bathe yourself in the water surrounding the temple known as the Sarovar it represents being blessed. Just ensure that when you visit your head is covered and that you deposit your shoes before going in it is essential as it is being respectful to God.

    There is a museum about the history of Harmandar Sahib on the premises of the temple which is open to visitors throughout the day as well as Shri Akal Takht Sahib temple on the same premise.

    The Golden Temple is situated in the bustling city of Amritsar and next door is the remains of the Jalliyan Wala Bhag which is another of the attractions in Punjab.

  • The Golden Temple

    If your ever in the state of Punjab in India you must visit the holy sikh city of Amritsar. It holds the most treasured temple of the sikhs. Its beautiful and full of history. You can stay within the temple complex for about £10 a night. The Golden Temple as its known is open 24/7. If you visit in April you could see the celebration of Vaisakhi which takes place all over punjab but the experience in the Golden Temple is alot better.

    The Temples provide an insight into the Sikh religion and the generosity of the people. Of particluar interest is the Golden Temple in Amritsar but there are many others where you will be welcomed with open arms.

    In amritsar, I would definately recommend the Golden temple. Going there and not seein the temple is stupidity.Also, you can go 30kms ahead and see the border between India and Pakistan.Also, there are historical places to visit in Amritsar.

  • Jalianwala Bagh

    The Jallianwala Bagh massacre represents a major turning point in India's struggle for independence. ln the early 1900s, nationalism was on the rise in india and people realised that they could fight for independence provided they were united and organised. The First World War, infact, gave impetus to the nationalist movement all over Asia and Africa as the colonizing nations, in a bid to win support for their war efforts promised freedom and democracy to their people in the colonies. World War also ended the natives' awe for the White man's authority
