India Punjab Wagah Border

About

The international border of India and Pakistan, Wagah is a very famous tourist spot for that one reason alone.

It is here you can simultaneously see the change of guards, of two different countries happen at the same time at very short distance apart. At dusk, people throng the road to witness this thirty minute “Beating the Retreat “ceremony. It starts with the opening of the iron Gate, a brisk ceremonial parade of the soldiers of both the countries and ends with a synchronized bringing down of the two flags. The guards then depart after a crisp handshake with soldiers across the gate.

The Swarna Jayanthi Gate- the entry gate of the outpost beautifully frames some stunning views of the country ahead.
