Guru Ka Langar at Golden Temple
The Golden Temple is not only the holiest place in Sikh religion, but a symbol of love and equality for Amritsar’s citizens – and what better expression of love is there than sharing a huge table of food? Guru Ka Langar is a massive community feast cooked up in the Temple’s own kitchens, prepared to serve at least 40,000 people. Everybody is welcome, and no one is ever turned away. Here you’ll sit together on the floor in rows with folks from all walks of life, where you’ll be served an unlimited helping of dal, a seasonal vegetable, roti, rice, and water. The food is simple, like an everyday homestyle meal, but is quite well prepared and satisfying. The feast is free of cost and served by volunteers who are devotees of the Temple, but there’s no element of religion here; it’s pure, selfless humanity. If you want to give back after enjoying your meal, you can visit the kitchen premises and volunteer yourself, if you like!
