We did this attraction in Dec 2016.on the Indian side Our private tour driver dropped us off a distance away from attraction. We were warned not to take unnecessary items along as security was of high level at all times. Passport or ID necessary. Separate line to enter for Foreign passport holders which helped to get us in quicker than... More

An amazing event, there were approximately 800 local visitors and 200 international visitors to see this amazing exhibition of patriotism. The soldiers touching their heads with their legs whilst marching was indeed a sight to see. Both the Pakistani's and Indian soldiers displayed a colourful display of order and control whilst mocking each other and challenging the gate at the... More

I have seen this ceremony on the internet and was keen to go and see it. As their drill is based on the British Army, which I've served in for a long time, I was interested in the Indian Army interpretation of it! I wasn't disappointed. After we were dropped off we found that there was about a kilometre to... More

Great opportunity to witness the extent of pride and honor in our security forces towards our country. The zeal with which this flag lowering ceremony is celebrated every evening is really worth being part of this event once in a lifetime.

Its definitely one of a kind experience, I think this is the most patriotic feeling I have experienced ever. Definitely a must visit place for each and everyone. The atmosphere is electric on both sides of the border. The soldiers are in their to form and literally I had goosebumps. The ceremony starts at around 5 pm and goes on... More

Amritsar has a lot to offer, but if you have the time, take out the better part of an afternoon to also see (or participate in) this truly unique event that takes place at the border on a daily basis. Come early. The actual ceremony takes about an hour and starts around 4:45 (depending on season), but the bleachers fill... More

We had read about the Wagah border crossing ceremony so decided to add it to our India itinerary. It's a commitment to get up to Amritsar and then over to Wagah, but I would highly recommend going! We were on the Indian side, and the atmosphere was wild - music, yelling and cheering as we tried to out-do the crowd... More

The parade starts at 5pm but try to reach by 3 pm for better sitting and view. The BSF allows children's and females for Flag parade before actual parade starts. Fantastic display by BSF and suddenly the Indian inside you awakens. It is a different feeling as you are bang at the border and can see the Pakistan side which... More
