Amritsar: When one thinks free food and large quantities, there are famous religious places in India that come to mind. And, one of them is the Golden Temple in Amritsar.
Known to make large quantities of clean, vegetarian and nourishing meals, the Golden Temple has gone on to be known as the world’s largest kitchen.
The large quantities of hot puffy rotis (wheat bread), steaming bowls of lentils, and piping hot sweet meats on an everyday basis, makes it nothing short of a food factory in itself.
The temple opens its doors for not just Sikhs but for everyone who could use a nice plate of wholesome meals. It feeds at least 1 lakh people a day and the number only seems to increase on festivals.
Two dining halls that can house at least 5,000 people are present and there are several such batches throughout the day that have their fill.
