Ziona Chana, the head of a religious sect that practiced polygamy, died on Sunday, leaving behind 38 wives, 94 children and 36 grandchildren.

Chana reportedly suffered from diabetes and hypertension.
Doctors said Chana’s condition deteriorated at home in his village, Baktawng Tlangnuam.

He was admitted to hospital on Sunday evening, where he was declared dead on arrival.

It’s hard to say if Chana was indeed the head of the world’s largest family since there are others who claim the title.

It’s also hard to estimate the exact size of Chana’s family. At least one report claims he had 39 wives, 94 children, 33 grandchildren and one great-grandchild, which adds up to 181 people.

Chana and his family are a local sensation of sorts, attracting tourists to their village in India’s north-east, visit
and Chana’s extrordinary life has grabbed several headlines over the years.

The enormous family lives together in a four-storied house called “Chuuar Than Run” or New Generation House, with 100 rooms.

His wives share a dormitory near Chana’s private bedroom.

The mansion is a major tourist attraction in the state, with people from around the world thronging the village to get a peek into the family’s lifestyle.

Chana was born in 1945. He met his oldest wife, who is three years older than him when he was 17.
