It's worth a watch after bearing the extreme heat for a few hours. A wonderful ceremony by the BSF. The parade starts around 5:30 and lasts up to 6.

This was by far the best experience in Amritsar. It does get busy however, watching the ceremony is worthwhile. You will be in the sun so remember to take a hat and sunscreen!

Must get to the border ceremony if you have the chance, as a tourist you get allocated great seats next to VIPs, so take your passport or you may not get in, as the ceremony is very popular. Go early and take a hat, there are drinks on sale throughout at fair prices. It's stinking hot but the atmosphere is... More

It is a great experience to visit there and see the ceremony of closing the gates. It gives you goosebumps and a sense of patriotism which we have lost. But to reach there, you have to stand in long queues. And even after that you may not be able to enter the sitting area and watch the ceremony clearly.

If you want to visit the evening ceremony, first get a pass from BSF Camp at Khasa which is 20 Kms before the border. U need to know someone in the Army/ customs/ BSF to get this special pass. There are long queues and a few thousand ppl visiting the border everyday so its very very crowded. Also road work... More

I had no clue how big of a big deal this was. It was a celebration with 10,000 people. Go early so you can get a good seat and participate in the pre ceremony fun. Pre ceremony every one dances and has a great time. Make sure you bring your passport. If you have a non Indian passport you go... More

An experience that is worth the long journey, the security checks, braving the sun and the crowd. Try and get a pass through any contact, you would not be asking for a favour since the so called VIP galleries are full. It is just that you get a better view. The MC urges you not to shout slogans against the... More

If one wants to say thanks to our border security forces then this is the place to celebrate Beating Retreate Ceremony with them. It is 2km west of last village, that is Atari. Amritsar is around 30km and Lahore is 24km from Wagah border. Thousands of smiling Indians come everyday to cheer our BSF and Indian Army. From the parking... More
