about wagah border

Wagah Border in Amritsar between Pakistan and India is the only road border between the two countries. Apart from its national significance it is visited with great patriotism and enthusiasm for the ceremony that happens every day before sunset. The highlight is lowering of the flags of the two countries simultaneously. It lies on the Grand Trunk Road between the cities of Amritsar, Punjab, India, and Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. The border is located 22 km from Lahore and 28 km from Amritsar.

The flags are folded and the ceremony ends with a gesture that involves a brusque handshake between soldiers from either side which is followed by the closing of the gates. The spectacle of the ceremony attracts many visitors from both sides of the border, as well as international tourists for its high energy and enthusiastic ceremonial practice.

This checkpoint at Wagah Border in Amritsar  draws plenty of global attention and affords a stage for Indian and Pakistani paramilitary forces to strut their tough stuff. Each sunset, there are noisy partisan crowds cheering on the BSF and the Rangers as they present arms with much stagemanaged, in-your-face ceremony, each side trying to outdo the other. On special occasions, liberals on both sides take out candle-lit processions.
