Behind the Scenes: Eating at the Golden Temple Langar

See video

The Golden Temple in Amritsar, India, is the holiest site for practitioners of the Sikh religion. It draws thousands of visitors per day. Within the grounds of the Temple is the Langar, or free kitchen. Visitors can eat here for free--by some estimates 50,000-100,000 people per day. They are open nearly 24 hours. I spent some time exploring and filming the kitchen areas where all of the food is prepared, and this movie is the end result. I read that they can make up to 6,000 chapatis per hour!
