The famous langar hall in Golden Temple, Amritsar, is now preparing organic food to be served to pilgrims. Over 100,000 devotees partake in community service at the holy shrine, where they come together to cook in the community kitchen to feed the hungry. Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), which administers the guurdwaras across the country, has decided to adopt organic farming – a decision that is sure to delight pilgrims and conservationists alike. And guess what, not only is the food healthier but yummier too!

Lauding the decision Managing Director, HNN365, Manish Tiwari said: “The decision by Golden Temple to serve organic langar is inspirational. It is the step in the right direction and is befitting for a place of worship to encourage sustainable farming, maintain the purity of the crops and ensure healthier lifestyles. Everyone today is aware of how badly chemically-grown food affects their lives and the environment and this will certainly be an inspiration for all faiths to promote organic farming and take good care of the eco-system.”
