Wagah Border a perfect place to visit. The beating retreat ceremony is a great thing to watch when the military officials parade out to lower the flags. The border gates of both the countries are open at this time and the aggression of soldiers while the march past is perfect watch.

The best thing to see or experience in Amritsar to me, this is was better than the golden temple. Trip from Amritsar will cost around 1200 per cab. Try to start early around 2 pm from Amritsar for the closing ceremony as the venue can get full very fast. It might be because Iam an Indian, this event was very... More

The Flag retreat ceremony at Wagah Border is a good to catch spectacle. A chance to see the side beyond border and a ceremony designed to heighten the patriotism on both side, not to mention this heightens the rivalry just as much, that is the unfortunate part. BSF in its best regalia, looking formidable, is so precise in each act.... More

The second best thing to experience at Amritsar after The Golden Temple. Enthusiasm, Energy and Patriotism are out of bounds during the ceremony. A must experience, evenings attract lot more tourists than morning.

The flag lowering ceremony performed daily at the Pakistan / Indian border is well worth the effort to get out to the border. It is rather over the top but a fun, colourful and interesting ceremony that can only be seen here.

Wagah is a village near border situated near road border crossing which is 25 km from Lahore and 30 Kms from Amritsar. The ceremony between armies of Indo-Pak tokk place in evening which is nothing but ego show of both of them. Hundreds of visitors comes daily. You have to pass through a heavy tightened security.

I've seen the retreat ceremony a couple of times (having lived in the city) and all those years it's been fine in regards to the behaviour of the BSF guys. This time it was just a terrible experience! The BSF people were rude, argumentative and I'll mannered basically. (Especially a lady named Pallavi Verma who was on the ladies checking... More
