It was one of the most memorable moments of my life. All Indians feel proud. Flag ceremony is great celebration. This function requires courage and motivation. It was a great atmosphere. Its hard to describe the experience in words. India is the best and we salute the Indian army and BSF. Visit once in your life.

The Wagah Border is an army outpost on the Indian and Pakistani border, lying between the cities of Amritsar and Lahore (Pakistan). It is around 28 km from Amritsar and is one of the main access points overland to the neighbouring country of Pakistan. Among its many buildings, roads and barriers, one can witness the impressive Beating the Retreat ceremony, held here every day. During the ceremony, an infantryman stands at attention on both sides of the gate.

Then, the gates are flung open and the two soldiers, one from both India and Pakistan, approach each other, mimic anger and exchange fierce looks. After this, they shake hands and begin to lower both the Indian and the Pakistani flags on either side of the gate simultaneously. People from both countries gather to witness the impressive proceedings. On the Indian side of the border stands a huge gate with an encryption reading 'Swarn Jayanti Dwar' (Golden Jubilee Gate) and one can enjoy a panoramic view of the Wagah Border from here. The Lowering the Flag Ceremony is a must-see in Amritsar as the high-decibel spectacle leaves one in awe.

As night approaches, lights are switched on to mark the end of the day. There is patriotic fervour in the air as people start singing the National Anthem and applauding the ceremony. The energy makes for a rare display of pride in one’s country and nationality. Another attraction nearby the Wagah Border is a complex housing the samadhi of Sham Singh Attari, who was a celebrated general in the army of the Sikh empire. Samadhis of his family members are also there along with a water tank. Nearby is the Atari Railway Station

Full of Patriotism

The event is currently closed to the general public due to the ongoing pandemic, writing this review based on my experience during my previous visit. It is the lowering of the flag ceremony by the security forces of India and Pakistan which takes place daily. The aura and ambience is simply fantastic. Make sure to reach there by 2:00 pm otherwise it gets very crowded afterwards. Don't carry any baggage and belongings with you as these are not allowed. You will get goosebumps and will feel proud being an Indian.

A must see for all Indians.The improved arena with huge LED screens,newly constructed parking and food plaza provide much required comfort.

Please make sure you carry a water bottle or two, tissues,light snacks unless it's winter.The climate is hot and dry for better part of the year.Also start from Amritsar latest by 2 if you want a vantage point to view the parade.You can buy memorabilia from the shops so please carry hard cash if you are planning to buy some things back home.

On a philosophical note, it's just an flag de hoisting ceremony. Though one cannot stop appreciate the hard work, precision and timing the manner it is done especially the body language just shows what humans are capable of.

A must visit. Being on the Indian side, I loved feeling how proud Indian people are for their country. A once in a lifetime adventure .... I don't think I will ever cross that border into Pakistan.
Make sure not bring backpacks with you. There is strict security.
