This food service is done by volunteers and food is healthier as very minimal or no oil is used in the cooking. It is a continuous serving place - batches after batches. Receive the wheat bread with both hands and food is eaten sitting on a mat on the ground. Strictly no wastage. Ask for what one can eat.

This is where we have divine presence all over, the way sevadars serve, the way they prepare, the way whole thing is organized, it is divine experience. Nothing can beat Guru ka Langar, it is the best experience one can have in Amritsar!!

The Guru Ka Langar is part of the Golden Temple complex and it is a 24x7 service. The langar feeds thousands of devotees who visit the Golden Temple shrine daily and it is all for free. The place is not to be visited for tongue smacking food or a mind boggling menu, instead, this is a place that will win... More

The Langar at golden temple ( for that matter , at any gurudwara ) is an immersive experience. You experience the richness and purity of the Sikh religion. Visit this place and sit next to thousands of people and get the taste of divine prasad, which is a fruit of seva done by people who visit the temple. The scale... More
