It was a superb experience. Exhilliarating!!! I think all Indians must visit. We get to see the BSF (Border Security Force) at its best. The ceremony is something similar to "Changing of the gaurds" Brings out the Patriotism within you.

Attending the evening border closing ceremony at sunset is the best thing to do if you're ever in Amritsar. As a foreigner you will feel a little out of place surrounded by few hundred chanting Indians and Pakistanis across the border. It is definitely a place well outside the tourist beaten track in India and you can see a foreigner... More

We had been to Amritsar in August, 2014 and Wagah border ceremony was definitely the best attraction there. We got VIP passes, thanks to my mother in law, which lead us to the front seats as close as 10 metres from the border gates. The ceremony started sharp at 6:30 and continued for approx. 30 minutes. The whole environment there... More

this is the only border in the world where this ceremony (beating retreat) is being held daily for decades. The way the two armies goad each other, is worth every minute you have spent waiting in the stands. You will never get this sight anywhere else in the world and hence this becomes such an important attraction. Ther are multiple... More

Real Patriotism kicks in when you stand at Wagah Attari border and see Pakistan. The grand parade ceremony by Indian BSF is a must watch. The true feeling kicks in and kicks in hard that even a scorching sun would not hinder.

Visited wagah border, though the evening sun was troubling as there is no shade, watching the retreat parade with the fun fare like dance, singing and the gate opening was worth watching.. not sure whether would come back for a second time though.. was told that one can collect VIP pass from the BSF Office in town.. not sure how...

We hired an auto near the hotel Near the Golden Temple from 1400hrs till we reach back to city. It takes more than hour to reach the place. The entry starts only at 1630hrs. and a large crowd was there. Eateries and shops are available you can take water bottles and small bags inside. The show starts at 0530 and... More

This was my 2nd visit at Attari-Wagah Border to watch the “Beating Retreat” ceremony. The first time was around 4 years back and we had VIP passes then. This time though, it was the commoners entry. And what a world of difference! While the VIP entry is extremely time and energy saving and offers better seats and view, the action... More
