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.

    That turban is Sikh!

    That joke was Shiite.

  • Hazakabammer

    No, what you said was a load of shite, the Shiite are a a Muslim tribe, Sikhism is closer to Hinduism than it is to Islam. Ignorant Idiot.

  • Ser JuJoo Guppy

    He also rides his motorcycle shoeless, that just doesn't sound smart nor comfortable..

  • Hazakabammer

    wearing 287lbs above your head every day isn't smart either.
    His spine is compressed, you can see when he bends over, he can't bend his neck.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Actually, in the video... he rides three different bikes with no shoes.

    First one is a Royal Enfield 350 (I only know that because it's painted on the side) with round headlight and no light protector.

    The second one had a square headlight. Looked sort of modern (like mid 2000s)

    The third is a different round-headlight bike with headlight protector.

    This guy looks like an anime character.

  • Jenness

    You're right!

  • The_Wretched

    I guess he hates his spine for his religion.

  • Bling Nye

    Most religions prefer their followers be spineless. The backbone is evil and must be punished.

  • kodama

    Yes, standing by your beliefs in a world that mocks and persecutes you because of them sure is spineless.
