Pick a non holiday weekday during your visit to Amritsar and be at wagah border before 4 PM. After a routine security check, you will be allowed to gather in the gallery. Select a good viewpoint and get seated. Go there anytime later in the evening, you get to watch only the crowd!! The event is very aggressive and still... More

Whenever in Amritsar, Wagah Border is a must visit for me..!! The prolific march, their sync and the perfectly timed foot tapping(that makes a good deal of noise) gives a very peculiar feel and is a treat to watch.

Liked: the passion and the drama Disliked: the organisation by BSF. Got stuck in long line, monstrous traffic jams and overcrowded spectator areas.

I crossed the border from Pakistan to india. The Pakistan side was fine and immigration on the India side was smooth. Indian customs was however something else. I watched as another international foreign traveller had all belongings rifled, messed up and tossed back into her bag. When she became distressed the customs officers just laughed. When it came to my... More

Atari border is on the Indian side and Wagah is on the Pakistan side. The ceremony which the BSF does daily will give you goosebumps. The patriotic songs they play will make you love your country India thousand times more. It's really an eye to treat. It shows that BSF and Army has to do lot of things so that... More

The show on Attari border (wagah is the Pakistani side.) is awesome and very patriotic. But I was totally surprised by the arrangements. The day we went, there was a huge crowd. We reached there and had to wait for two hours under scorching sun as there was no shade, than the gate opened and there was a mad rush... More

We had travelled to Wagah Border in the Independence week this year. Cars were allowed upto a point and from there one had to walk. It was very sunny and the heat was driving everyone crazy. The security check took quite a bit of time. Once inside we were settled in the VIP gallery. There was a lot of music... More

Its a very good experience and gives you a great feeling of patriotism. If possible it is better to visit on weekday rather on weekend as you can avoid some crowd that way

Avoid visiting on Friday and Sunday as its highly crowded. Need to reach before 3pm to get good seats. The flag ceremony lasts only about 15 minutes but its worth it. Pls double check before purchasing the DVD sold by local hawkers.
