Full description
Join this 6-hour guided tour to get a better understanding of Amritsar and its people in Indian history. Visit the Partition Museum, War Memorial Museum, and the Wagah Border ceremony to gain insights into the constantly evolving relationship between India and Pakistan. After your hotel pickup, you will be taken to the Partition Museum to explore different exhibitions narrating the heartbreaking stories of the partition of the country into India and Pakistan. The collection of art, refugee artifacts, and oral histories depict the displacement and loss of communities as they left their homes overnight. Next, visit the War Memorial Museum, which houses a state-of-the-art gallery where martial tradition and military campaigns can be viewed. Travel back 3 eras, through the pre-British, British, and post-independence periods with a special light and sound show. The 7D auditorium is a must-do experience during your visit, transporting you to the war zones of the past. Finally, head out to Attari, a village on the border of India and Pakistan, connecting Amritsar and Lahore. Famously known as the Wagah Border ceremony, witness soldiers of both nations carry out an elaborate military ceremony and the lowering of flags at sunset. End the tour with drop-off to your hotel.
