Make sure you take the time to see this while in Amritsar. A share taxi will be 120 rupees from Amritsar return. It's a tight fit and takes approx 1 hour each way but that's part of the fun. These can be found in front of the Golden Temple, or I should say they'll find you. The ceremony and the... More

This place is hyped and best avoided. The crowds are insane and BSF is not able to do a good job managing the crowds. The actual show except for the march was quite distasteful with ladies dancing to disco music supposed to represent our culture.

Take the trip to Wagah Border and enjoy the show. They are dancing, singing and shouting for warming up - and then they start the show. It's amazing, it's entertaining, it's funny. Don't miss it if in Amritsar.

Wagah Border is worth the experience only if you go early and block the seats in the afternoon. The stands becomes full by 3 PM and if you miss out you would have to stand outside and watch the parade unfold on the giant screen (which isnt much fun, is it?)

The Wagah border closing 'lowering of the flags' ceremony or 'The Beating Retreat ceremony' is a daily military practice that the security forces of India and Pakistan have jointly followed since 1959 at the Wagah - Attari Border Crossing.This place was on my must Visit list. Whwn i reached the parade had already begun, but the moment i reached here... More

If you come to Amritsar to visit the Golden Temple you should come to the wagah border and see how Indians gather together to show their patriotism. An opportunity to get a taste of local culture

One really feels extremely proud of the men and women of the armed forces who selflessly serve the country in extremely difficult conditions. Well choreographed and coordinated ceremony with Pakistani Rangers. I just hope that we establish a lasting friendly relationship with our neighbours. In the end both the countries have so much in common.

I have visited the border twice, earlier as a normal entry and latest with a VIP entry. Normal entry- park car at the external parking which is approx 1km far, not ideal for families with senior citizens and kids. reach atleast 3 hrs before the ceremony to have a realistic chance to get an entry. Hope that people in front... More
