The Indian, considered the head of the largest family in the world, died in the northeastern state of Mizoram.
There are conflicting reports about the number of Ziona Chana’s family members. He is believed to have had 38 wives, 89 children and 36 grandchildren. According to other information, the family numbers a total of 181 people.
Ziona Chana died as a result of complications from diabetes and high blood pressure.
The man led a religious sect that practiced polygamy. It was founded in 1942 by Chan’s grandfather.
The huge family usually consumes 30 chickens, 60 kilograms of potatoes and 100 kilograms of rice a day. The family lives on a four-storey mansion with 100 rooms. Chana’s wives are housed in a huge bedroom that is adjacent to his rooms.
Indian media claim that Ziona Chana holds the world record for the largest family, but it is not officially recognized.
Ziona Chana, who was born in 1945, met his first wife when he was 17, BTA reports. She was three years older than him.
Chana’s family home, as well as the northeastern state of Mizoram, have become a local tourist attraction. People from all over the world visit them to see how the most populous family in the world lives.
