Jallianwala Bagh is the site of a memorial for those who died in a massacre that took place at the same location in 1919. You may be familiar with the massacre from its depiction in the movie Gandhi. The killings were carried out by British troops led by Col. Reginald Dyer against nonviolent protesters convened in the park there.
