An over the top but but exciting ceremony. Watch archival Indian & Pakistani troops strut like peacocks and try to outdo each other with very smart military marching moves. Huge crowds on each side of the border cheering them on.

Loved this place and even some of the Pakistani soldiers were kind enough to allow pictures with them. I had an amazing experience but it ignited a sense of sadness aswell as pride. Just sad that there is no peace and unity with India and...More

Have attended the evening prayers. Which are breathtaking! Crossing the border, passing through the gates entering to a neighbouring country is quite different.

This was my third time at Wagah border, twice on the Pakistani side, once on the Indian side. The ceremony with its old British colonial taste is awesome to watch and very amusing also!

If you have an Indian visa and arrive at the border during their working hours I cannot think why they would not let you cross over. I would get there as early as you can as I believe the process is rather slow.
