The concept of langar is an inseparable part of the Sikh religion and has risen from the spirit of service deeply ingrained in the faith. Every gurdwara (Sikh temple) has a langar. At the Golden Temple, the service is round the clock, the food free, and you can eat as much as you want. Obviously, any kitchen that feeds 50,000 people daily (100,000 on special occasions) would pack some formidable stats. Here are a few: about five tons of wheat are used up per day; each of the three lentil cauldrons has the capacity to cook 400 kg at a time; the stirring is done by hand-held ladles, which are taller than a man; the list goes on…The food? Simple, vegetarian, and home-delicious. Much of the preparation, serving, and washing is done by pilgrims and volunteers–it is considered a privilege to do so. And everything is hygienic, spick-and-span, and orderly. \nAdya’s tour not only includes a wholesome meal but also a glimpse at how it all comes together.
