The Jallianwala Bagh Massacre occurred in 1919, when a British commander misunderstood a peaceful protest as an uprising. He ordered British soldiers into the gardens to shoot at the protestors. After ten minutes and on near empty with bullets, he stopped the shooting. It is believed that over 300 men and women were killed. This Today, visitors can tour the garden and pay respects to those people who lost their lives that day. It stands as a memorial.
