Wagah Border Tours

15 Reviews
Wagah Border
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.

Practical Info

Wagah is a 45­-minute drive from Amritsar.There are public buses to Attari station, from where the last few kilometers can be made by taking a cycle rickshaw. The Beating the Retreat ceremony begins at 4:15pm daily. There is also a short cultural program performed by local folk dancers beforehand.
Address: Attari­Wagah Border, Amritsar, Punjab 143001, India
Hours: 4:15pm for Beating the Retreat ceremony

Retreat ceremony at Wagah Border with VIP Passes

Every evening, just before the sunset, the soldiers from the Indian and Pakistan military meet at this border post to engage in a 30-minute display of military camaraderie and showmanship. Officially, the purpose of the ceremony is to formally close the border for the night and lower the national flag. However, it is an entertainment ceremony and a display of national pride for the thousands of people who come here every day. During the build-up to the ceremony, the crowd engages in chanting the Indian national anthem, rounds of applause and Bollywood-style dancing on Hindi songs.So, plan your visit to Wagah Border and experience the Retreat Ceremony with VIP passes arranged for you

Amritsar - Be a part of the Beating retreat ceremony Wagah Border

A visit to the border is an interesting experience, especially at sun-set, when the retreat ceremony takes place with the Border Security Force (B.S.F.) on the Indian side and The Sutlej Rangers on the Pakistan side performing a well co-ordinated and spectacular display which compares very favourably with the changing of the guard in London.
