The Wagah border is a place that you have to visit! The vibes of this place are so amazing! You go through atleast 5 different body checks on the way to the border. You are not allowed to bring your bags to the border. The disadvantage is that the tourists get put away from priority seating so you can't see... More

The sun was setting from the Pak side and hitting on you directly and this is tiring. Also the Pak gallery is arched, so the view I guess will be better. You'll get shared auto near the golden temple. Be there by 1:30/so you'll be seated at wagah by 2:30 to get decent seating. don't carry any bags. mobile and... More

A must see. Although you don't need it I would recommend taking your passport to make things easier. If your going with a female friend expect to be apart at times with 3 levels of security checkpoints.

If you are in the Amrsitar area then this is a must see. The border closing ceremony happens everyday and has to be seen to be believed. From the amazing uniforms the guards and army wear on both sides to the crowds on each side shouting and spurring each other on. Best to get there early and take some ID... More

Soldiers from both countries guarding their territory have held Border retreat ceremony since 1959, I believe. Tourists' performance with cheer leader's guide made this place so loud. and Soldier's military performance was so much memorable for long time and opening door for ceremony with lowering their national flag with every regular military actions was fantastic and I thought who made...
