An amazing spectacle, a must for anyone visiting Amritsar. About 40 minutes drive from Amritsar to the border. The evening flag lowering retreat parade ceremony is a grand display of discipline by the Indian and Pakistan Army personnel, definitely worth spending around a couple of hours. Most advisable to reach the site by about 4.30pm, an hour before the ceremony.... More

Adrenaline rush to a new high when screaming out slogans with fellow Indians. Men, women and children all present on the Indian side V/s male dominated other side.. Reach well before time to get a good view seat

This place is a worth going once in life time if you are a true Indian.You really need to go there much early and wait for the performance.If you are lucky enough you will get place to sit in the front.This place will take you back to the memory lane of Freedom fighting.An amazing experience.

The biggest show of theatrics put up by the security forces of the 2 countries. One went to observe the old military ritual of lowering of flags at sunset. However, one got to see a demonstration of each side trying to outdo the other in their exaggerated body movements and threatening behaviour.

The ceremony at the Wagah border had indeed raised the patriotic feeling inside me...It's a place really worth seeing and never miss it if you are planning to see Golden Temple and Jallianwala Bagh at Amritsar...The ceremony starts at around 4pm and ended by 5pm...It would be better to reach there a bit early as you can grab seats which...

If you stay in Amritsar: you must travel here. It is such an amazing experience, Indian guards march to 'out-do' the Pakistan guards! Only an hour from Amritsar and ridiculously cheap, this is a must!! Great atmosphere and anticipation from the onlookers!

This is well worth a visit and see the spectacle of the flamboyant ceremony for both sides of the border. The Border guards are very tall, even allowing for the shoes and head dress. The crowd and experience gives a real essence of what India is about.

Evening ceremony makes you feel the real meaning of patriotism. Its hard to explain it in words, you need to experience this. Cheering and Hooting reaches to another level. If you have some jack in military try and get VIP entrance and seating, this will make your visit more meaningful and realistic.
