Punjab's Holyman, The Devout Sikh Avtar Singh Mauni Wears The World's Largest Turban With Pride...
He spends six hours of each day dressing himself in the world's longest and heaviest traditional Punjabi turban called a Pagdi.
It weighs a staggering one hundred pounds and measures 2115 feet long.
The weapons and jewelry the sixty year old carries to adorn his costume weighs another eighty seven pounds.
He's been adding adornments to his attire for the last sixteen years so he's accustomed to the weight and the balancing act required to move around. The only way he can get to his local temple is by motorcycle.
It's just as well he doesn't have to wear a motorcyle helmet as well...
