The viewers’ gallery at the famous Wagah border in Punjab will be increasing its seating capacity soon. The numbers of seats will rise from the present 5,000 to 13,525.

In the first phase of the project a new gallery, museum, exhibition space cum souvenir shop, 20 bedded room lounge, 31 seater conference hall, dining hall with kitchen, 11 rooms and a barrack for guards will be constructed. The CPWD has been sanctioned Rs 24 crore for the same.

In the later phase, cafeteria, musical fountain, statue area, covered waiting area for visitors, toilet blocks, visitors parking and landscaping besides four lifts in the gallery will be built.

The work will be taken in parts so that sufficient space will be available for the visitors during all stages of construction for watching the sun set view.

The foundation stone for the new gallery was laid by Home Minister Rajnath Singh in the presence of Chief Minister of Punjab Parkash Singh Badal on March 22, 2015.
