World’s Largest Quran - Biggest Quran in the world

World’s Largest Quran Exhibited in Tatarstan

The world’s biggest Quran was presented in Kazan, the capital of the Russian republic of Tatarstan, on Thursday. At the presentation, the audience gasped with delight when the giant book in a stone-encrusted gold-and-silver frame cover was unveiled.

 The Quran arrived from Italy where best jewel makers worked for a year and a half on a folio that is destined to become yet another Muslim relic. Symbolically, the work was completed this year, proclaimed Year of the Russian and Italian Language and Culture. “I haven’t seen anything like that in my life!” Rishat Khamidullin, the press secretary of Tatarstan’s Muslim Spiritual Department, told the Voice of Russia:

 "This is the world’s biggest Quran. One is really impressed by its size – 1.5 m by 2 m, and 3 m by 2 m if unfolded. It weighs 800 kg. The 120-kg frame cover is tinseled with gold and silver and adorned with malachite, jasper and phianites. It’s a veritably unique book. The event is great importance not only for Tatarstan but for the entire country. The book will be at Kazan’s Qul Sharif mosque until next May, and then it will be transferred to the town of Bolgar where it will be put on public display at a local museum."

 Situated on the left bank of the Volga about 200 km south of Kazan, Bolgar is an important historical site where ancestors of modern Tatars adopted Islam as their state religion. The town is famous for its monuments. The Bulgar historical and architectural museum compound with its mosques, mausoleums and chambers dating from the 13th and 14th centuries is a candidate for UNESCO world heritage status.

 Another absolutely unique Quran, which has no analogues in the world, was created in Russia five years ago. This is a gold copy of the so-called Osman Quran. The 8th -century original is kept at the Institute of Oriental Studies in St. Petersburg. The 162 pages were embossed on gold leafs at the Moscow Mint. Some pages of the gold Quran were sent to Saudi Arabia and Egypt as a gift from Russia and as a sign of respect for all nations professing Islam.

World's largest bra chain

World's largest bra chain set World Records by kiwi Girl Guides in New Zealand

Girl Guides in the New Zealand town of Dargaville have put "Bra-gaville" on the map with an uplifting, record-breaking effort, stringing nearly 170,000 bras together.

The last brassiere was hooked to its neighbour late on Sunday night to create the chain of 169,324 supporting undergarments.

The chain, laid out in a zig-zag pattern at the town's Memorial Park, was about 135 kilometres long and breaks the previous world record of 166,625 bras set in Australia three years ago.

The project was part of Girl Guides New Zealand and the Breast Cancer Foundation's efforts to raise awareness about breast cancer.

It took two years to collect the bras, which were donated from across the country, Australia, Britain and the US.

About 100 Girl Guides took two days to connect the bras by their hooks and eyes.

Chain instigator Robyn Martinovich said she was happy but relieved the project was over.

She had seen enough bras to last her a lifetime, and so had her husband, she told AAP.

She had no idea where the suggestion of calling Dargaville "Bra-gaville" came from, but thought it was hilarious.

On Monday, they had already started dismantling the chain.

The best bras will be donated to women in the Pacific Islands and Africa.
Local politicians will verify the record, the details of which will be sent to the Guinness Book of World Records.

World's longest dosa set Guinness Book of World Records 2012

A team of more than 20 dosa masters joined hands today to make the world's longest dosa, measuring a serpentine 48.25 ft, which found a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The record-breaking crew, led by renowned chef Damoranan, known as Dhamu, broke the previous record of the Vijayawada Hotel owners Association, who had made a 38.2 ft long dosa.

"We spread the longest ever dosa - Guinness dosa today," Damodaran, who was assisted by 20 dosa masters in the effort, said.

The feat was achieved as part of the food festival organised at the Tamukkam Ground here by the Madurai Rountable 14 in association with Ladder Commercial Solutions, a Chennai-based event management company, and with support from Madurai Hotels' Association.

The event was held to raise funds to support government schools and orphanages.

As part of the feat, a 61-ft dosa pan had been made and fitted to a special steel table. The weight of the pan was 900 kg, Satish Devadoss, one of the organisers, said.

The organisers started using the 61-ft dosa tawa by rolling out dosas for visitors yesterday. The final spread was done as per Guinness specifications. Officials from the Guinness Book of World records were present when the dosa was made, Devadoss said.

The burners for the huge dosa tawa were manufactured and brought from Chennai while three dosa tawas, each measuring 20 ft each, were fitted here. The total weight of infrastructure involved in the event including table and pan burner was 4,000 kg, Devadoss said.

The huge quantity of batter required to make the Guinness dosa, about 1,500 kg of it, was provided by Hotel Temple City.
