Had a great time visiting the border ceremony. It's hot! but is well worth the effort to see the quite odd border ceremony.

Its a place which is too much hyped and has nothing great to offer. I visited recently and learnt that while the ceremony starts around 5:30 PM, the stadium was packed by 3:30PM. I could not even reach the gates of the stadium .. so you can imagine the kind of rush which was there ...and not to mention the... More

This is one place where everyone feels pride in being an Indian. You can expect huge crowds at the border and have to be there at least 2 hours before. Please note that you don't get cellular signal at the border and be careful of people snatching your wallets and mobiles. To get the best view of the ceremony you... More

One can visit Wagah border to experience the vigil and the discipline the evening ceremony. The place gets extremely crowded and the arrangements are not at all great especially for the general crowd. It gets extremely hot as you are to wait for 2 hours before the ceremony starts. It can be a great experience If there the sitting gallery... More

It is one of the most unique retreat ceremony organized anywhere across the world. Desh bhakti songs played before the ceremony and the ambiance gives a strong feeling of patriotism. People chant " Vande Matram", "Bharat Mata ki Jai", "Hindustan Zindabad" etc at the top of their voice to beat the sound coming from the other side of the border.... More

We went to Wagah border to show our kids the ''Show''. In reality, we also needed to see it. The 4 musts of a visit to Amritsar -1) Golden Temple 2) Jalianwala Bagh 3) Wagah border 4) Amritsari cuisine (both for vegetarians & otherwise). The crowds, dust, parking woes, confusion - are at its peak. Inconsiderate tourists pushing & shoving... More

I visited on Aug 14 2014 it was toooo crowded(not sure if it was because of Independence day the next day). There are food stall available nearby and its nominal, also please... More

Having visited the border-closing-ceremony on the Pakistani side just days before, my husband was keen to also see the ceremony from the Indian side. We found the whole experience to be a keen disappointment. We arrived and had been advised we could take our backpack in with us, so we waited at the gates for more than 45 minutes, before... More

Its not about the patriotism.. But basically being so close to a side that is unofficially considered as India's greatest enemy even while deep inside we know that its the same genes that courses through both our cells. As you stand there, so close to all those stories of terrorism and friendship one part of you looks at them with... More
