Pul Kanjari Amritsar - The Testimony of the Sacrifices of Some of the Greatest Jawans

The Pul Kanjari Amritsar is a testimony of the supreme sacrifices by the Indian Army soldiers to recapture the bridge from the hands of Pakistani soldiers. It was captured by Pakistan in the wars of 1965 and 1971. The memorial represents the courageous Sikh regiments’ Jawans who had an equal contribution in the recapturing of the bridge.

A strange but interesting story is said to be believed behind the bridge that was built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh for a talented dancer of his Royal court, who refused to perform after the disappointment of losing her silver sandals presented by Maharaja, while crossing the canal near the Shalimar Gardens. Much respect was not given to the dancers in those days and they were named as ‘Kanjari’ as associated with the name of the bridge. The place is also known as Pul Moran as the word ‘Kanjari’ was abusive in the language of Punjabis.

The memorial of the Jawans is renovated and preserved by the Government of India in collaboration with the officials of Punjab. They have constructed a Mosque, a Baradari, a Mandir and a Sarovar, each of which makes the place worth seeing. The shrine placed in the temple is of Lord Shiva and is constructed of Nanakshahi Bricks. The roof and the sides are made of brilliant fresco work, which got faded with the passage of time. The sarovar consists of an open space for men and a covered one for the women to take a dip. There is a separate slope for animals as well. Initially the pool was the store house of the water, which was supplied by the nearby canal. The ruined part of Baradari consists of a house with 12 doors, where Maharaja Ranjit Singh used to stay during his visits to Amritsar.

We were really proud of our country’s soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the Pul Kanjari Amritsar built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh and dedicated to a dancer. We returned to our hotel and packed our bags as we had booked tickets in flights scheduled to leave for Delhi the next day morning.
