“Bizarre yet highly entertaining”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Brilliant atmosphere not to be missed! Watch the Pakistanis and Indian guards try to out do each other in their spectacular march display. Get there around 3.30pm to get good seats and take your passport for VIP seating area.

“Fun to visit”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

Watching, and listening to, a little of Indian and Pakistani nationalistic pride was interesting. The actual ceremony was fun to watch. Foreigners was allowed to sit in a special area with good viewing opportunities.

“revive ur zeal and love to your motherland”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

Also known as WAGAH,Attari border crossing is famous for evening retreat ceremony between indian and pakistani soldiers.Thousand of indian and few hundred pakistani comes everyday to boost the morale of soldiers in the ceremony...

Starts at 5 pm,its advisable that you leave amritsar by 4 pm..else you wil not get a best sitting location as crowd increses into density with time......

Dont forget to carry ur personal camera to record memorable moments..

“Such drama, such bravado”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

It's a great event, difficult to comprehend how both countries manage to fill their respective stands every night. Having arrived, be prepared for a 1 km walk from the car park. Ladies are filtered out down a seperate channel, whilst men have to fight their way through the barriers - keep tight hold of small children. If you're a foreigner, flash your passport near the gate and you get a seat a bit closer to the action.
