Usually polygamy in Eastern countries ends with two, less often three wives. But a resident of India named Zion Chan left this stereotype far behind.
The man celebrated his wedding again and again, over and over again. And now he lives with his 39 wives in a five-story house with more than 100 rooms.
Zion’s house is located in the middle of the small Indian village of Baktwang.
The house is really huge: in fact, it is a personal five-story building.
The most interesting thing is that in addition to living spaces, there is a personal school of the Zion family and a farm.
It turns out a real microstate, and with not the smallest population.
The man even gave the house a name. Chhuanthar Run, roughly translates to “New Generation” in the local dialect.
Today, Mr. Chan has exactly 39 wives, and he himself is 79 years old.
At the moment there are 181 children in the family and all of them also live in the same house.
You might think that all this is fiction, but Chan’s achievements are even officially registered in the Guinness Book of Records.
The main wife is in charge of the whole household. Her primary task is to manage the nutrition of the family.
In just 1 day, the family eats up to 100 kilograms of rice, 30 chickens and 60 kilograms of potatoes.
This is actually a factory canteen!
Despite his age, Chan does not intend to stop and plans to expand the family.
The authorities do not restrict Zion Chan in his aspirations, but they do not help financially either. This role is assigned to grown sons – they all work as carpenters.
