Amritsar, Mar 16: Guru Ramdas Langar Hall at Sri Harmandir Sahib, otherwise known as the Golden Temple, is among the world’s largest community kitchens. The Golden Temple, located in the western Indian city of Amritsar, provides a hot meal to anyone who walks through their doors regardless of case, creed or religion.

According to NDTV, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) made the decision to practice organic farming and do away with the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers. The committee administers the gurdwaras, the place of worship for Sikhs, across the country and will be adopting practices such as crop rotation, using organic fertilisers and plant-based pesticides and herbicides.
