One of my life long ambition was to visit Amritsar. I wanted to see the 3 main attractions there. Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh Memorial, and Wagah Border military ceremony. This past January we visited Amritsar and had a memorable time. We enjoyed every minute.
Jallianwala Bagh Memorial
On a Punjabi New Year day, April 13, 1919, British General Dyer ordered the shooting on innocent Indians assembled for a meeting. About 400 people died and 1200 wounded.

This is the holiest shrine in Sikhism. Words cannot describe its beauty. You have to go there to see it to experience.
