#travelwithgdp Fact: The flag-lowering ceremony conducted every evening at Wagah is called the “Beating Retreat” ceremony. It has been conducted by the Indian Border Security Force and the Pakistan Rangers since 1959.
Description: The Wagah Border is a must visit for everyone who would like to see the glory of BSF in action. As Michael Palin, who after filming the ceremony at Wagah, described it perfectly as a “carefully choreographed contempt”. The well-groomed mustaches, the high leg raised stamp of the legs, the jolly humor of the commentator as this alongside the crowd shouting ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ is truly a spectacular scene to see unfold.
