Chana’s enormous family live together in a four-storey house called “Chuuar Than Run” or New Generation House.

Hindustan Times reported that all his wives, his sons and their families stay together, while his daughters stay separately with their husband and their families.

The 100-room house has become a major tourist attraction, with people from across the globe visiting the village to get a glimpse of the family.
