Jaigaon is crowded and chaotic where as Phuntsholing is organised and peaceful. Both side has different Architecture and culture. For a tourist it gives a nice photo opportunity. People, their food and clothing is different on both side which are separated by just few yards.

Just one gate changes your views and feeling. At one side you have India and another side Bhutan. Good view and architecture.

You will definitely see this gate when you enter/exit Bhutan via land. Its just a gate marking the boundaries of the 2 countries. Visa/Immigration offices are located within 5-10 meters.
