Langar Khana

 

Langar Khana

In the eastern side of Sahan-e-Chiragh, there is a chain of small rooms. In the middle of this chain, stands a door, which is the entrance to vast court-yard, and a verandah. One of its doors opens in Gali Langar Khana. Two huge iron-cauldrons are installed in the verandah. Salty porridge is cooked in these cauldrons two times daily, in the morning and evening and distributed among the poor. The Langar Khana was built by Emperor Akbar for the poor. Langar Khana is a free public kitchen where about 5 mounds of barley meal is cooked twice a day and distributed to the poor without any discrimination.
