Meet The Indian Turbanator: He Wears The World’s Largest Turban: 645 Meters & 100 Pound

Men constantly complain about women taking too long to get ready in the morning. There are some women who can spend an hour more getting dressed and putting makeup on. But this is nothing compared to this guy in India who spends a mind-boggling SIX hours just to get his turban on. Seriously, SIX long hours.

Avtar Singh Mauni from Punjab, India feels incomplete without his turban on, which is not that unusual – a lot of Indian men are rather attached to their headgears. But Avtar Singh’s turban is not just your standard turban – it weighs an astounding 100 pounds and is made up of no less than 645 meters of fabric.

This over-the-top turban takes six hours to put on!


But Avtar Singh is not the least bit bothered by it.


“I don’t consider it a burden. I’m most happy when I wear it,” he said.

“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?”

He also carries a sword and wears heavy bangles, adding another 87 pounds to his outfit.


He actually wants to break the world record for the longest turban, which is 400 meters.


“When I go out a huge crowd gathers around me. Some are amazed beyond belief and tell me, ‘You are great for carrying such a large turban. You must have been blessed with lots of energy.’”

But he confesses that he doesn’t relish the attention that much.


“Sometimes all they want is to take a picture, so I loudly tell them to stop. After all, it takes me hours to put on my turban and all they want is to take a quick picture and then run away.”
