Guru’s Langar
and the traditional Rs.20 offering (ਭੇਟ)

In the winding maze of Androon Lahore, in Kotwali Wala Bazar near Chuna Mandi is hidden an architectural gem
Well maintained and partly functional, this is Gurdwara Janam Asthan Guru Ram Das

An easy to miss edifice, this Gurdwara as per the tradition commemorates the birthplace or childhood home of the fourth Guru Sri Ram Das
A simple gateway with blue writing on kesari background announces the same
Janam Asthan Sri Guru RamDas Ji, Chuna Mandi, Lahore

In off-hours’ quietness I was greeted by Jetinder Singh, a gracious host he was
I was shown around, enjoyed my share from Guru’s langar
Jetinder then narrated the story of Guru Nanak’s Sacha Sauda (ਸੁੱਚਾ ਸੌਦਾ)
Following Guru’s tradition we left Rs.20 as a humble offering (ਭੇਟ)
