Photographer's Note

The couple walking and discussing contrasts with the sad past of the place. I include it in the garden photo to present the place. Jallianwala bagh is a historic garden and ‘memorial of national importance’ in Amritsar, preserved in the memory of those wounded and killed in the Jallianwala bagh massacre that occurred on the site on the festival of Vaisakhi, 13 April 1919. It houses a museum, gallery and a number of memorial structures. The crowd made of people belonging to all religions gathered at the garden to listen to speakers protesting Rowlatt Act and other policies of the colonial British government. A large crowd had gathered, when the British general Reginald Dyer ordered his soldiers to surround the Jallianwala bagh, then open fire into the civilian crowd. Hundreds died and thousands were wounded. The massacre strengthened the opposition to the colonial rule throughout India. Source : wiki
