It is advisable to reach at least an hour early as... More

Separate line to enter for Foreign passport holders which helped to get us in quicker than... More

An amazing event, there were approximately 800 local visitors and 200 international visitors to see this amazing exhibition of patriotism. The soldiers touching their heads with their legs whilst marching was indeed a sight to see. Both the Pakistani's and Indian soldiers displayed a colourful display of order and control whilst mocking each other and challenging the gate at the... More
