The holy man’s turban is no ordinary one. Singh wears a turban that, when unwound, stretches some 2,115 feet, which is the same length as 13 Olympic swimming pools.
For comparison, the average turban worn by men who follow Sikhism measures about 16 to 23 feet of fabric. Singh figured he could do better.
As of now, he stands to break the world record for largest turban.
The turban is multicolored and decorated with silver ornaments and weighs about 100 pounds. That’s 100 pounds of fabric resting on the 60-year-old’s head all day every day.
