Amritsar, Punjab, India
Monty Python Meets Bollywood at Indian/Pakistani border closingThis is without doubt one of the most bizarre daily events in India! Thousands of Indians and thousands of Pakistanis, separated by an iron gate, witness the border closing in a fever pitched event. It's Bollywood meets Monty Python as each side cheers it's soldiers in what can only be described as the silliest walk ever!
While it's an exciting and joyous ceremony Pakistani men in black, complete with wrap-round sunnies and machine guns, who are strategically placed to survey the crowd, add a surreal element.
Balance the day out with a morning or evening visit to the Golden Temple in Amritsar.
