Wagah Border

At the Wagah border outpost there is a complex of buildings, roads and barriers on both sides. At the entrance of this outpost, there is a sightseeing gate with a dedication "Swarna Jayanti".

Only Travel Guide enhances your knowledge about Wagah Border and presents online trip for Amritsar Punjab, India. The Wagah border is the only border that crosses India and Pakistan from the cities of Amritsar of Punjab and Lahore respectively.

The crowd fell silent, drained of energy. What it left behind in the minds was sure to last a long time. What was the purpose of the entire proceeding ? It bred nothing but intolerance between two neighbours who could surely do without more animosity. Two peoples who have been brothers till recently are separated by artificial borders and daily events like these are only helping those wanting the relations to remain sour. It is time for sane persons in both countries to put a halt to the madness in these 'showdowns' held daily at sundown.

Sunset experience
Wagah, an army outpost on Indo-Pak border - between Amritsar and Lahore, is an elaborate complex of buildings, roads and barriers on both sides. The daily highlight is the evening "Beating the Retreat" ceremony. Soldiers from both countries march in perfect drill, going through the steps of bringing down their respective national flags. As the sun goes down, nationalistic fervour rises and lights are switched on marking the end of the day amidst thunderous applause.

Outlook Traveller Tip
Wagah Border, Wagah Border travel, Wagah Border tourism, Wagah Border Historical Place, travel to Wagah Border MonumentIf you plan to visit the Wagah Border for the changing of the guards ceremony, leave Amritsar early to be at your seat by 5.30-5.45 pm. Hold your cab for the return journey; you don't want to Attari to find a bus.

Though travelling by car is the best option, you can also take a bus to Attari from Amritsar and then catch a rickshaw/ autorickshaw for the last 2 km. For the return trip by bus, remember that the last bus to Amritsar leaves Attari by 6 pm.

Border Timings: Open 10 am-4 pm.
