A Single Village in two countries

You must have heard of Wagah border. Do you know this famous border or line divides the village Wagah into two ?

The village was unified before India Pakistan partition in 1947. And then the controversial Radcliffe Line was drawn dividing the village into two. Today, the eastern half of the village remains in India whilst the other half is in Pakistan.

  3. Dubbagol Team,
    Officially welcome here.

    Yeah, maybe, I am weak in history ! 😛

    Thank you for liking my travelogues. I am aware of it. But the links you give to your readers, won’t suffice. They can not read my posts from my homepage. You should always link to my individual posts.

    Thanks once again.
