Inside the mess hall of the Golden Temple, beyond the free food you also get free drink. Fresh water available for everyone and poured on those aluminum bowls that you see next to the plate. Usually are the kids who go through the rows of people serving the water thanks to these curious mechanisms.
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.
Thousands of visitors travel to Amritsar every week from all over India to visit the Golden Temple... but not only for the sacredness and beauty of the place, but also for the incredible and admirable work that you is behind this by now from 400 years.
Why are you a photographer? for what? This is an important question that sooner or later you have to make to yourself. One of the days spent in Amritsar made me understand more, an aspect that I love about photography.
