Foreigners are allowed in the "V.I.P." stand on production of your passports.One has to sit on the steps as standing is not permitted. People with problematic hips or backs should take care. You get a good view of the gated border and marching soldiers. One side chants first then the other follows. Interesting ! We saw the bus from India... More

The colors are fascinating on the India side in stark contrast to the black white and grey of the Pakistan side. This daily ritual between India and Pakistan is amazing. So much music, dancing, and drama.

Worth taking the time to arrange a visit. Hard to describe experience as like nothing else I have been to. 2 stands eith side of the gated border packed with people singing and chanting. Not at all threatening but happy and proud of their respective countries. Very staged but good fun even for a visitor and you can't fail to... More

The daily evening ritual that's carried out by both Indian and Pakistani Guards is a great treat for eyes to watch. But the catch here is you should get a place to sit at the actual border point as its sooo over crowded and only people with VIP passes and foreigners are given first preference.. We went on a weekend... More

Every Indian should be here & feel the aderline of the proud country we are.BSF jawan, the real hero show was the best in the world, continous chant of Hindustan jindabad, vande maatram fills your soul with pride & pleasure. Reach as early as possible because the crowd is unlimited, in summer reach by 4pm for some chances of seats.

This is a 15 minute ceremony and only half of it can be seen well by either side. Yes, women on the India side run with the flag and dance prior to the ceremony but an hour and a half in the heat was not worth it.

An hour away from main Amritsar, the Wagah border has become a major tourist attraction...thousands of people descend on the border to get a glimpse of patriotism/jingoism (take your pick!), It is sweltering hot in July...the sun is above us, we are soaked in our sweat...but that does not stop us from being jostled and pushed with the crowd...Its a...

A place where you would be completely taken away. Screaming JAI HIND calling out for India and love for your country truly comes out at this place.
