Man Wears World's Largest, Heaviest Turban (187-Pounds)

February 28, 2017


This is a video about Bhai Baba Avtar Singh Mahakaal of Chandigarh, India, a Sikh man who wears a 85-kilogram (187-pound) turban as a symbol of his faith. The turban consists of 645-meters (2,116 feet, ~0.4-miles) of fabric and takes between 6.5 - 7 hours to tie. For reference, I could tie my shoes almost twice in that time. He says he doesn't feel the turban's weight at all, which, if you couldn't tell from the shot above, also doubles as a motorcycle helmet, and probably a pretty safe one. My motorcycle helmet? It's not so safe. "That's a cantaloupe." IT'S A HONEYDEW.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Linden, who can barely keep his head up wearing a winter cap.
