Is this the world's largest turban? Man wears 100lb, 645m long headdress
Meet devout Sikh Avtar Singh Mauni - the proud owner of what could be the world's largest turban. The holy man's impressive headgear weighs a hefty 100lbs and measures in at a staggering 645m when unwrapped - the same as 13 Olympic-sized swimming pools. The 60-year-old has been regularly adding to it for the past 16 years and it can take him up to SIX hours to put it on. His supersize turban has made him one of the most respected preachers in the Pubjab, India, but it causes its fair share of day-to-day problems such as fitting through doorways and getting into cars. He rides a motorcycle during his regular pilgrimages throughout the state and has no problems balancing, despite his turban weighing more than a Labrador retriever. Its size is yet to be officially verified - but if proved correct it would overtake current Guinness World Record Holder, Major Singh, whose turban measured 400m.
