We loved to experience the closing ceremony of the border. You only have to sit and wait on the stages for a long time and there is no possibility to get out of the sunshine. But definitely worth the visit! Very special and wonderful to see!

Great fun and great ceremony to watch. Some really important travel tips to the Border. 1. Foreigners get special seating so do not pay for a VIP tickets 2. Very hot in June-August, but, water is only 20/- and there are plenty of vendors. 3. There a 3 checkpoints so bring just a cap and water bottle if you do... More

What a waste of time. It was hot bc we traveled in July, but even had the heat not been so oppressive, it wouldn't have changed the fact that unless you get VIP seating you won't see very much of the actual ceremony (VIP seats are not the seats a foreign passport affords you). You will see a couple of... More

It's my first time when I visit wagah border to see retreat ceremony, it was very nice to see when BSF did blustering PARADE on the beat of drums and ends up with by doing their flags down and there is a good coordination in both nations. This ceremony was done every evening when border gates will open for few... More

If you are in Amritsar & have time, visit to Wagah Border is must....Ensure to reach the border ard 2:30-3:00 to get seats (may be early if you are going on weekend or long weekend).

The Wagah border evening ceremony is such a bizarre attraction in all our India. I loved to join this ceremony on 25th July with mine and friend family. Our group and all other people were present there have enjoyed a lot this ceremony with the great BSF security forces. The stands become smaller for the numbers of people have reached... More

I agree with most of the feedbacks regarding space issues. However, construction is in progress to improve spacing which would resolve it upto an extent. You can get a sharing taxi near golden temple for 100/120 per head /seperate taxi would cost nearly 1000 both ways. You cannot carry your handbags/ladies purses inside....therefore its recommended not to carry much stuff... More

The place is filled 5 times its capacity. People have problem sitting down. The VIP enclosure is not protected and everyone from the other places just slide into the VIP area. During our trip, the location was so hot and we emptied maybe 25 water bottles, interestingly, there is no proper place to dispose the empty bottles. The behavior of... More

At the sunset, its charm reaches at peak when security forces from both India and Pakistan perform "lowering of flags" ceremony. It about an hour journey from Amritsar. On way you can enjoy Panjabi foods on road-side dhabas. Try to get VIP pass.
