Beautifully conducted 'Beating Retreat' ceremony by the BSF. Brought many to point of tears. Its a great experience to expose our metro-bred-PSP-totting children...to bring them to at least think of what the country's been through to allow them the 'ease of freedom'.

This ceremony offers an amazing experience. If you think about the india—pakistan relations and you see the ceremony you will understand how amazing it is. Go early because it gets crowded. Going there and coming back takes time. Indian people really enjoy the ceremony! Lots of energy!

Get here early to get close enough to the border gate and watch the retreat ceremony held on both sides of India and Pakistan. You need to walk to kilometre after alighting from the parking. Snacks are available through hawkers. Avoid going on a long weekend as the crowd is multi folds during such times. A definite place to visit... More

Some construction going on blocked our view of the parade. We could only see the starting point. The crowd was pushing around..I don't know how patriotism can make you push your fellow countrymen around!!!! And ppl stand up in front of you. Seats get full by 4pm but parade starts at 5.30pm. Till then the sun is punishing. Bsf has... More

Known for its famous competitive parade between India and Pakistan. One of the most politically important place of both the countries. the parade is an everyday activity, it starts at 5.30 p.m. at summer time and 4.30 P.m. at winter. But the place is too crowded and filled with over-zealous people to see or enjoy the parade.Best if you can... More

this is the star attraction after the Golden Temple, on a visit to Amritsar, i believe. ok, so you have to walk for a distance, about one kilometre, and then sit on one side of a road, which ends on a gate, on the border, just before the other side's border. The mood is patriotic, with loud speakers playing patriotic... More

This is one crazy place and well worth the visit to see a ceremony which might look festive, but the fervour is genuine and underlines the animosity between the 2 countries

Patriotism is there is in the air at this place. People on both sides of border screaming with joy for their countries is a treat to watch. Wonderful retreat show makes your day. Though reach early to get a seat but be ready to tolerate heat and dust. Shared autos are the best mode to reach here.

We were there for the parade which begins at 5:30. The place is a bit crowded. The parade is a must watch. If you need a place to sit, you must be there atleast couple of hours early. Suggestion: You should carry a cap/hat+ a bottle of water !

We visit for the parade. The parade was good to see. Very crowded place. If you come early then you can have a nice view of parade. You can have vip pass for seating near to parade
