it was a beautiful Spring day on April 5th to watch the flag-lowering parade between the two countires, the atmosphere was beautiful with patriotism flowing through every song and dance. The pomp and colours of the show, however do get dampened as the viewers' gallery is cramped to the gills. Mind you despite having VIP passes for the viewing -... More

This one was overhyped!!! The crowd is large... the setting sun in your eyes as you watch the ceremony and the way the seating is structured you really can't see much of what is happening at the gates. Maybe things are better wher the VIPs sit so unless you can wangle one (or are a non -indian passpprt holder) it... More

The Attari-Wagah border is an experience like none other. The atmosphere of the place during the closing ceremony is absolutely electrifying. The sheer energy of the soldiers displaying their coordination through years of discipline and practice is exhilarating. Crowds on both sides of the border cheer as loudly as possible to encourage their soldiers. Each soldier does his/her very best... More

We decided to go to Wagah since we finished with our temple visit pretty early. You have to set out by 3:30 pm to be able to get to Wagah in time for the ceremonies. Gates open at 4 and until then you are made to stand in a line that is constantly pushing and shoving. The gates open for... More

A tour to Wagah border, makes you see the other country's land. Though separated by high barbered wire fences you can feel that its just the same soil other-side too. Same human being made of muscles, bones & blood; almost same culture. The beating the retreat parade in the evening is a must watch for all the people. A roaring... More

It has it all. A huge crowd attends on the Indian side every evening - not so many on the Pakistan side. Security is tight, but not too troublesome. The Indian crowd is hugely enthusiastic, whipped up by a cheer leader who knows his trade and his audience well! The result is a high energy crowd, to whom the elite... More

Wagah Border (Attari on the Indian side) is a must visit place for all Indians. Every day, there is beating retreat ceremony in the evening where flags are lowered at sunset. It is something which one should not miss while in Amritsar. But as they say, all good things come at a price. Accessibility: Situated on NH-1 (G.T. Road), there... More

If in Amritsar take the time to visit Wagah border specially if you are a patriotic Indian! The energy of the crowd and the high stepping Guards make it a trip worth doing. No bags allowed.

If you get some good seats, you can watch the guards marching and saluting etc. I wouldn't say it is a "must see" however the music, dancing and cheering creates a vibrant atmosphere. The drive through Atari village is very green and picturesque.

This is just over the top and a bit Monty Pythonesque (no disrespect to India) but it was a great way to spend a few hours. I really enjoyed it and it was great to see so many people being so proud of their country. Well worth it - just loved it.
