About 16 tons of food are prepared daily in a kitchen in Amritsar, India, which is open 24 hours a day, serving more than 100,000 people.
The kitchen is close to the so-called Golden Temple, one of the most important shrines for Sikhs, followers of a religion founded in the Punjab region between India and Pakistan.
Many on-site workers are volunteers, in addition to 350 cooks. Most of the work is done by hand, with the exception of a mechanized oven that produces about 18,000 loaves an hour.
Meals are free for those unable to pay and are served to people of all religions.
