Going to the Sikh Temple was amazing. The first thing people do is take off their shoes and wash their feet and hands before entering. When you enter the main temple you walk clock wise around the room. The most amazing part was the kitchen where volunteers cooked in order to feed 30,000 people a day. They cooked basic Indian food, all vegetarian. Anyone could come eat regardless of religion. They also allowed people to stay the night. There were huge vats of food cooking in copper pots: lentil soup, rice and curry, lots of people preparing the bread, rolling it, and flipping it for naan bread. People from all walks of life, even rich people were there volunteering. Most of the food is donated.
