I really enjoyed this visit. Security was tight as expected, with two passport and one search checks prior to arrival at the border. I was separated from my husband as is the norm in lots of parts of India during the searches so make sure you plan in advance to wait up for each other at next possible waiting area.... More

If you are in the Punjab please attend this ceremony it is a must, please note as a non resident Indian take your passport and you may get priority entry, as this is a boarder security is tight you are not allowed handbags, tobacco or lighters they will take your Tabaco and lighters and discard them.

This is a must visit place if you are visiting amritsar for the first time. The thrill of looking at pakistani crowd just a stone's throw away & crowd cheering for their countries & trying to suppress loudness of other side...it is just amazing. The parade of both side's soldiers amongst the deafening chants & showing strengths to each other... More

Visited second time after four years, the vigour of the drill has come down since my last visit. In winters try to reach there by 2:30PM as you may not be allowed go get in...It all depends on crowd. But it's a place you may not miss as you won't find much to see around Amritsar.

Well worth the trip. Bring your passport!! Brings to life the Indian Pakistan tensions . Great cheering Indian crowd with opportunities to take photos with military.

Take your passport- if you're a foreigner you get VIP seating and can avoid some of the crowding, just tell the guards as you walk up. Very impressive, you can get some great pictures here!

Make sure you take the time to see this while in Amritsar. A share taxi will be 120 rupees from Amritsar return. It's a tight fit and takes approx 1 hour each way but that's part of the fun. These can be found in front of the Golden Temple, or I should say they'll find you. The ceremony and the... More

This place is hyped and best avoided. The crowds are insane and BSF is not able to do a good job managing the crowds. The actual show except for the march was quite distasteful with ladies dancing to disco music supposed to represent our culture.

Take the trip to Wagah Border and enjoy the show. They are dancing, singing and shouting for warming up - and then they start the show. It's amazing, it's entertaining, it's funny. Don't miss it if in Amritsar.
