Wow we loved this. Of all the things we have seen in India (and that's an awful lot) this was probably the best. The compare kept the crowd entertained and they actively encourage the women and girls to play a part in the festivities the drummer keeps the beat whilst you watch the Guardsmen. Fabulous. They do suggest you take... More

The lowering of the flags at the Wagah border was awesome! Awesome show put on by both pakistan and India. This is a must see and about as close as one will get to Pakistan from India! They even let you dance in the streets before the lowering of the flag begins. If you're a foreigner u get vip seats... More

Firstly, lemme confess that I rate it 'Excellent' coz of my VIP pass (friend is an IAF pilot) but am sure the stands for the general public were not in the least bit comfortable. Positives: 1) when the 'show' begins, the patriotism is epidemic. Esp'ly since the crowd on the Indian side is waaayyyy bigger i.e. more encouraging shouts, more... More

We got VIP passes. Sat in the most visible area with full family by 4:30pm. All those old déshabillé Bhakti songs like mere désh ki dharti on full blast facing indian crowd increases your heartbeat. In the gaps between songs you can hear Pakistani music. We could take a lot of pictures with our soldiers withe gates in the background.... More

What? While you visit Golden temple as your primary attraction in Amritsar, Wagah border should be the second in your list. (Like the locals, am trying to discount Jallian Wallah Bhag due to sensitivity of the place, its not an attraction, its place to mourn). At Wagah border, both Indian and Pakistan armies do a joint flag retreat ceremonies. Why... More

Had a great time visiting the border ceremony. It's hot! but is well worth the effort to see the quite odd border ceremony.

Visit to Attari- Waga border on 14th August was a life time experience. Witnessed School Children performing on patriotic songs. The team BSF displayed excellent skills during the change of guard ceremony.
