The arrangements are well made with high security, naturally. There are huge crowds and sometimes one may not be able to get in due to the place limitations. The ceremony is impressive, especially the show of aggression. It really makes us proud and get a nice feeing. This is a must see if one goes to Amritsar,

The parade is worth seeing with slogans on both sides. The evening ceremony of gate closing at indo pak border is to be seen by all Indians

Worth Seeing After visiting the Golden Temple we proceeded at about 1 pm for the Wagah Border as we were told that despite the VIP pass we were holding, it may not be possible to get entry for seeing the parade until we reach there before 2.30 pm. It is a scintillating experience indeed. Dr. Rajesh Bhola Spiritual Writer &... More

wagah border visit is a greatly hyped event. too many VIP's spoil the event and the theme depicted in the ceremony is not desirable. Common man sits outside the gate and watches on television screen.

Do not believe all the hype and spin about a VIP position. We booked with Viator at a substantial cost with VIP tickets and viewing position included. All this meant was a $50 price per person and a comfortable ride to the border and a meal on our return. We didn't see the guide once we got there until we... More

A must see "theatre" experience, and it is unique! We are sure that the two sides meet for a beer after the 'show' but the "animosity" certainly looks realistic.

Well worth the trip from Amritsar to see this wonderful daily ceremony it's a very noisy colourful event, not to be missed, I found the best way to travel was by a fixed price taxi, it's a little too far by Tuc Tuc. NB. do remember to bring your passport as ID checks are carried out before entry.
