For visit this place you need prior permit, therefore please get it arranged prior. They have many stands where people can sit and watch the flag down ceremony at the wagah border which is performed by BSF jawans. Please reach a little early to be seated on time. The atmosphere there was electrifying with people dancing and shouting 'Bharat mata... More

I have seen this parade before and this was my second time. The crowd numbers have swelled multi fold now and it becomes difficult to get a place with people coming in atleast 2-3 hours early. Ladies and gents seating is different and it could become unbearable due to the heat in the region The ceremony lasts only 30 minutes... More

Foreigners are allowed in the "V.I.P." stand on production of your passports.One has to sit on the steps as standing is not permitted. People with problematic hips or backs should take care. You get a good view of the gated border and marching soldiers. One side chants first then the other follows. Interesting ! We saw the bus from India... More

The colors are fascinating on the India side in stark contrast to the black white and grey of the Pakistan side. This daily ritual between India and Pakistan is amazing. So much music, dancing, and drama.

Worth taking the time to arrange a visit. Hard to describe experience as like nothing else I have been to. 2 stands eith side of the gated border packed with people singing and chanting. Not at all threatening but happy and proud of their respective countries. Very staged but good fun even for a visitor and you can't fail to... More

The daily evening ritual that's carried out by both Indian and Pakistani Guards is a great treat for eyes to watch. But the catch here is you should get a place to sit at the actual border point as its sooo over crowded and only people with VIP passes and foreigners are given first preference.. We went on a weekend... More

Every Indian should be here & feel the aderline of the proud country we are.BSF jawan, the real hero show was the best in the world, continous chant of Hindustan jindabad, vande maatram fills your soul with pride & pleasure. Reach as early as possible because the crowd is unlimited, in summer reach by 4pm for some chances of seats.
