Langhar deghs at Shrine of Shah Yaqiq, Sindh

Via Flickr:
All shrines across Pakistan feed poor people. This general feeding is known as Langhar and the place where the food is cooked is known locally as 'Langhar Khana'. Thousands of people are fed daily at each of the major Shrine of Pakistan. This helps greatly in a country where food may be expensive for quite a lot of people.

Here, the empty deghs (in which food is cooked) are waiting for the food to arrive at the Sufi Shrine of Hazrat Shah Yaqiq (RA).
