It was afternoon hours we were at Golden Temple road. On the left hand side we saw a prepaid taxi booth and a thought why not inquire taxi fare for Wagah Border though the wish was to visit next day i.e., Diwali festival day.
Rs. 100 per person – prepaid booth counter person said. If you book today it is Rs. 100 per person to and fro journey and if you book tomorrow it will be Rs. 120/-. We book two seats in-advance. Rs. 200/- paid. We were told to visit next day at 2:00 pm.
Next day at 2:00 pm we reached the same location and showed the pre-paid receipt. After few minutes there were few more guys. They were also joining for Wagah Border visit via the same taxi. Total there were 10 tourists if I am correct and the taxi driver. We had a little walk to reach a taxi stand and then within taxi – a jeep. The journey started at 2:30 pm reached Wagah Border at 3:45 pm approx. 600 meters before Wagah Border. Taxi was parked by the driver and we walk towards Wagah Border. It was a nice 32 km journey as per display board but driver said – 35 km journey. Very useful prepaid taxi service. After Wagah Border ceremony we re-started journey and by 6:30 pm we were back nearby Golden Temple, Amritsar.
Prepaid booth is open for 24 hours – said the counter person.
Then only day I thought to inquire: Is there any bus for Wagah Border from Amritsar Bus Stand?
Yes, said the conductor standing atÂ Shaheed Madan Lal Dhingra Interstate Bus Terminal nearby Sangam cinema. Fare – Rs. 30/-per person one way journey.
But I am still not that sure about bus because I haven’t seen any bus nearby Wagah Border but still will try bus journey one day.
