It has it all. A huge crowd attends on the Indian side every evening - not so many on the Pakistan side. Security is tight, but not too troublesome. The Indian crowd is hugely enthusiastic, whipped up by a cheer leader who knows his trade and his audience well! The result is a high energy crowd, to whom the elite... More

Wagah Border (Attari on the Indian side) is a must visit place for all Indians. Every day, there is beating retreat ceremony in the evening where flags are lowered at sunset. It is something which one should not miss while in Amritsar. But as they say, all good things come at a price. Accessibility: Situated on NH-1 (G.T. Road), there... More

If in Amritsar take the time to visit Wagah border specially if you are a patriotic Indian! The energy of the crowd and the high stepping Guards make it a trip worth doing. No bags allowed.

If you get some good seats, you can watch the guards marching and saluting etc. I wouldn't say it is a "must see" however the music, dancing and cheering creates a vibrant atmosphere. The drive through Atari village is very green and picturesque.

This is just over the top and a bit Monty Pythonesque (no disrespect to India) but it was a great way to spend a few hours. I really enjoyed it and it was great to see so many people being so proud of their country. Well worth it - just loved it.

It was overcrowded. They should do something to restrict the crowd. Wasted time. Could see some dance.

We were unlucky enough to visit this event on a very busy day. Our guide told us there would be somewhere to sit - there was hardly room to stand - we were like sardines! We were ordered about by very officious military personnel, and my wife left before many minutes. I followed soon after, without seeing any part of... More

It is a complete mess. Unruly crowds from all over the country congregate here to exhibit their patriotism by stampeding on the stands and dancing (western steps of course) to bollywood music. The place is full of pick pockets so don't carry valuables. If you really have to go, use your influence to get a VIP pass from BSF.

I fell in love with this place, both Indians and Pakistanis sitting at one place at a distance of hardly 50 Mtrs. You will love this experience. I felt like a true Indian.. these patriotic songs have never touched my heart like the way it did at wagah border
