Wagah Border Tours

13 reviews
The partition of India and Pakistan in 1947 led to the marking of the Wagah Border between the two nations. It’s located around 30 kilometers from Amritsar and consists of a long white line that defines the border between the two countries, separated by two heavy gates on either side. The Wagah Border is the only open crossing between India and Pakistan that’s officially accessible by both countries.

The border has become famous for its Beating the Retreat ceremony, which marks the closing of the gates and lowering of both national flags a few hours before sunset each day. A huge crowd gathers on both sides to watch the show every evening, which is stylized by pomp and vigor combined with overt patriotism and a sense of ceremonial duty.
