Photographer's Note

Wagah border lies between the city of Amritsar(India) and Lahore(Pakistan). The border closing ceremony occurs everyday before sunset and visitors local and foreign alike are treated to a spectacular performance. There is an atmosphere of celebration and patriotism as each country try to outcheer their neighbour on the other side of the border!

Ceremonial guards in their elaborate uniform march up to the border gate and in a display of mock challenge to their neighbour, kick their legs as high as they can. The ceremony then continues with the lowering of the flags and subsequently, the closing of the border gate.

The Wagah border is located about 40 mins away from the city of Amritsar and is accessible only by motor transport.
