The fast-food chain plans to open two meat-free locations in Amritsar and Katra next year.

McDonald’s, the world leader in burger-based fast food, has plans to open its first meat-free location in the northern Indian city of Amritsar. The inaugural vegetarian Golden Arches will be located near the Golden Temple, a holy site for Sikhs, with a second location planned for the town of Katra, which is adjacent to the holy Hindu temple of Vaishno Devi Mandir. In respect to local culture, McDonald’s restaurants in India are already 50 percent vegetarian, having replaced signature beef-based meals with local cuisine.
