Although there are no official records that show that Chana is the head of the world’s largest family, his family has become a local sensation and even a tourist attraction in the village.

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.

Chana is the head of a religious sect that practised polygamy called Chana Pawl. It has about 2,000 followers who all live around Chana’s house. The sect was founded by Chana’s grandfather in 1942.
