Anyone who remembers the Monty Pythons’ ‘funny walks’ sketch will know what to expect at Wagah. The famous border crossing point west of Amritsar is the venue for a daily ritual in which representatives of the opposing armies open and close the gates dividing their two countries, dressed in flamboyant uniforms. As they strut and goosestep back and forth, the soldiers are cheered on by their respective crowds: something of a holiday atmosphere prevails, and despite the serious geopolitical undercurrents the event is great fun and good natured.

You can add this experience to any tailor-made itinerary that includes a night in Amritsar.
