One of the must to do if you are in India or Punjab. Get your patroitic side on, even if you dint know if you had one. Post visit I have had the highest respect for the Indian army. Bharat Mata ki Jai

Good Experience visiting the border. The closing ceremony at Wagah border, Attari village is worth a visit. If possible AVOID going during 26 Jan, 15 Aug and 2nd Oct. Civilians may not be allowed without a PASS which is not easily available, as Preference is given to Military Personnel Families and the VIPs. and the stands will be jam packed.... More

An unique, sentimental place, very very unlike from other sight seeing spots we traveled so far. But expect a better management from Army.Though seats are limited, there was no control of entry. I advise to go there early to grab a seat, otherwise it could turn into like a crowded football stadium, where people couple of times from its capacity.

The ceremony incites national harmony and love and it is quite mesmerizing to watch it live. I make sure to visit and be a part of this ceremony when... More
