There is no pushing and sshubbing that you wil find in other popular Indian temples. People are really nice and it has the largest kitchen and eatery in the world with hundres of thousands eating free eevry day. The process itself is fascinating.

Food is made by the people voluntarily and served thru the day with amazing speed. The Langar or free kitchen was started by the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji. It... More

One needs to collect the plate while one is in the queue, then a bowl and then spoons as you snake your way towards the door that will let you into that massive langar feasting hall, once the thousands of hungry people inside are done.

The guru ka langar at the golden temple is a not to be missed experience and its all about faith. The food we were served was simple, rotis, dal, kadi and kheer. The food was tasty and every person accepted the food with all humility and did not see anyone wasting even a morsel. Cooking, cutting the vegetables, service, cleaning... More
