This morning starts with the visit to the historic Jallianwala Bagh, which commemorates the hundreds of innocent Indians killed or wounded by British bullets in the most notorious massacre under their rule.
Next to it is the Partition Museum which comprehensively charts the Partition with a narrative arc that moves from the time before partition, proceeds to the independence movement, the early demands for separate countries, and ultimately the Partition and its consequences.
In the afternoon, you will be taken to Wagah Border to witness the retreat ceremony. From Amritsar, 35 Km on the road to Lahore (Pakistan), is the India-Pakistan border, which is also known as "Attari (India)-"Wagah" (Pakistan) border. A visit to the border is an interesting experience, especially at sunset, when the retreat ceremony takes place with the Border Security Force (B.S.F.) on the Indian side and The Sutlej Rangers on the Pakistan side putting up a well-coordinated and spectacular display which compares very favorably with the changing of the royal guard in London. The sound from the bugles blown together from both sides paints past on the canvas when India and Pakistan were one, simultaneously Flags of the two nations are ceremoniously retrieved and lights are switched on marking the end of the day amidst thunderous applause. Today this point is the only land route to approach Pakistan and central Asia.
