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

If only all border crossings were dealt with this way. It was a fantastic spectacle of the people, Indians competing with Pakistanis on who could make the most noise! The soldiers were impressive, there's no doubt, but perhaps the most wonderful was seeing the women, who are generally so suppressed here, get up & dance like their lives depended upon... More

What a site!! With patriotic songs playing in the back ground and ground chanting at the top of their voice "Bharat Mata ki Jai" and "Vandematram", your love for your country is at the top and you are filled with desh bhakti

The border ceremony at the Attari-Wagah border by the BSF in the evenings on the Indian side of the Indo-Pak border is a truly fantastic event. The entire ceremony which takes about a hour is a masterpiece of coordinated effort. Huge number of visitors from all over the country and abroad come to witness the ceremony.

As part of our tour to Amritsar, we were taken to the border at Wagah to witness the closing ceremony. What a display of National pride. It was very enjoyable. As we were foreign nationals, we were directed to the VIP seats, get there early to get a seat
