Wagah border or the Indo-Pak border

The Wagah border is the only road crossing between India and Pakistan. It is located on the Grand Trunk Road between Amritsar City in India and Lahore City in Pakistan. The controversial Radcliffe Line was drawn through Wagah village. Thus the village was divided by the 1947 partition.

The border here is often called the Berlin wall of Asia. It is military check point and every evening there is a gate closing ceremony called ‘lowering of the flags’. Shown in the video is the Wagah gateway near Amritsar in Punjab state, India. Tourists gather everyday on both sides of the Wagah crossing to watch the retreat, lowering of the flags and ceremonial closing of the gates, conducted by the border forces of both sides with much co-ordinated precision drill and ceremony.
