India-Pakistan Border Ceremony

India-Pakistan Border Ceremony

Wagah is the only road border crossing between Pakistan and India.

It lies on the Grand Trunk Road between the cities of Amritsar, Punjab, India and Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. 

The border is located 22 km (13.75 mi) from Lahore and 32 km (19.88 mi) from Amritsar.

 

Wagah, named Wahga in Pakistan, is a village through which the controversial Radcliffe Line, the boundary demarcation line dividing India and Pakistan upon the Partition of India, was drawn. The village was divided by independence in 1947. Today, the eastern half of the village remains in the Republic of India while the western half is in Pakistan.

It is particularly known for the elaborate Wagah border ceremony that happens at the border gate before sunset each day.
