Singh’s Turban at 645 Metre To Set World Record!


Proudly owned by a devoted Sikh, Avtar Singh Manui, this extra large headgear weighs a hefty 100lbs and measures an astonishing 645 metres when unwrapped.

Mr Manui has been regularly adding to the colourful turban for the past 16 years and said that it now takes him an incredible SIX hours to put on.

“I don’t consider it to be a burden,” said the 60-year-old.

“I’m most happy when I wear it.

“I just keep putting on the cloth from top to bottom one layer at a time just like you would lay the storeys of a building.

“On the rare times I don’t have my turban on I keep getting this feeling of being incomplete, that some part of me is missing.

“I get afraid that I may fall and I keep wondering ‘have I lost something, where is my turban?'”

The current record for world’s longest turban belongs to Major Singh, whose cloth measures at an impressive 400 metres.
