The Golden Temple is a gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. It is the preeminent spiritual site of Sikhism. The gurdwara is built around a man-made pool that was completed by the fourth Sikh Guru, Guru Ram Das in 1577. The temple is home to one of the biggest community kitchens, Guru Ramdas Langar across the globe. Guru Ramdas Langar is run by volunteers, who are cook, serve food and wash up. The langar serves fresh vegetarian meals all day and night.
This is the largest free kitchen in the world. Food is served for everyone, regardless gender, religion or ethnicity. This foodhall feeds 100,000 people for free each day. And on religious holidays that number can double. The pandemic had halted religious gatherings in most parts of the country, including gurdwarasto contain the virus. But the community kitchen stayed open serving thousands of people food, as its always done. Earlier during India’s strict lockdown, just under 50 people kept the kitchen open, cooking up to 50,000 meals a day.
