One of the main attraction while visiting the nearby Golden Temple. The patriotism is at its best. The atmosphere was like the same as it used to be during India & Pakistan cricket match. Everyone was cheering and dancing on the famous patriotism Bollywood songs. The energy of Indian Army will definitely adore you. Best time to visit would be... More

The place is not well maintained by BSF. The crowd management was poor with no facilities to common public. Public with no connections is forced to sit on HOT stairs with crowds pushing from all sides. BSF is totally not concerned with this.

You have to see to feel it. The nationalistic fervor that comes into you with all the chorus, crowd and songs cannot be explained in words. Go early by 3-4 PM to get best seats. It gets really crowded ! Avoid weekends. You need a vehicle to reach there from Amritsar. Either rent it out or drive your own. The... More

The atmosphere was terrific and the retreat ceremony parade was excellent. But the arrangements for the public was not good, the place was over crowded.

We went with great expectations but there was complete chaos and mismanagement, there were loads of people even if the space there was only 25% to accommodate them. There were large screens installed but they too blanked out after every 5 minutes.

Good one time visit because crowd management is poor If you have vip pass then its good otherwise males and demales dont sit together so in no way you can enjoy with your family Once program starts its an electrifying atmosphere, It could have been better planned
