"Golden Temple - Kitchen" Amritsar Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Amritsar Things to Do: 114 reviews and 269 photos

The kitchen or Guru Ka Langar is open 24 hours to all visitors irrespective of religion, caste, creed and nationality. Approximately 50,000 visitors eat the meals prepared here so you can just imagine the scale of the operation that is undertaken. The kitchen, which was smaller than I had expected, is where volunteer cooks prepare meals such as chipati's and cooking them on large open hot plates and cooking curry in large pots. It was a hive of activity and the smell was fantastic.
