Witness the Wagah Border Ceremony

One of the best experiences during a stay in Amritsar is to venture outside the city to the Wagah border point between India and Pakistan. Here you will see the closing-of-the-border ceremony, performed nightly by soldiers of both countries. The experience is quite surreal, as each side takes turns to lower their flags in an increasingly elaborate fashion, accompanied by nationalist slogans shouted at high volume, and repeated en mass by the large crowds of spectators on both sides. In truth the effect is more fun than threatening, but a totally unique experience nonetheless!
