The most impressive aspect of the Golden Temple is the fact of being able to provide free meals 24 hours on 24, every day of the year since more than 400 years! Thanks to the help of hundreds of workers and hundreds of volunteers, 100,000 meals are prepared each day (200,000 on the weekend), 500 every 10 minutes, served free and unlimited to everyone that comes here.

Once I arrived here I was amazed and impressed by this admirable service, seeing how everyone helps each other. From the younger to the older, men and women, rich or poor.. of any kind of religion.. all together in an unique and impeccably organized teamwork.
This is the preparation of the ingredients, where hundreds of people peel and cut what will be later brought to the kitchen for cooking. Quintals of onions, garlic, zucchini, fruit, etc... anyone can sit here and perhaps help taking over from those who are tired
