gurdwara darbar sahib: Soon pilgrims can relish organic langar at Kartarpur Sahib, can take home produce from Baba Nanak’s fields | India News – Times of India

AMRITSAR: Soon the visitors to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, Kartarpur Sahib, will have langars prepared with organic farm produces. Not just this, they can also bring home some of the produces grown in the “fields of Baba Nanak” with them as prasad.
This as the Project Management Unit (PMU) of Kartarpur Corridor on Thursday began organic cultivation of vegetables and other crops in the “fields of Guru Nanak” for the langar service of Gurdwara Darbar Sahib.
A total of 64 acres of land, which Sikh’s first master Guru Nanak Dev used to till, will be used for growing organic and chemical-free vegetables and other farm produces. The farming process began on Thursday with the chanting of ardas, said the chief executive officer (CEO), PMU, Muhammad Latif.
“For now we have planted vegetables, which will be followed by sunflower, paddy and wheat. Seasonal vegetables will be a permanent feature for the langar of Gurdwara Darbar Sahib. The Sangat would also be allowed to take the produce of Baba Nanak’s fields with them as prashad,” he said.
The CEO also said that a dedicated fruit tree garden was also being planned, for which the PMU had begun preparations like levelling of fields.
Latif further said that they had also begun preparations for the Jashan-e-Baharan, first spring festival since the opening of the Kartapur Corridor.
The Kartapur Corridor was inaugurated on November 9, 2019, for day-long pilgrimage for the Indian devotees but was temporarily closed due to coronavirus outbreak on March 16, 2020. It was reopened on November 17, 2021. Sikh’s first master Guru Nanak Dev had spent around 18 years of his life till death here and used to till the land. Gurdwara Darbar Sahib is situated about 4.5 km inside Pakistan.
