In full attire, Mr Mauni also carries a sword and heavy bangles, which weigh an additional 87lb.
The height and width of his bulbous headgear makes entering doorways extremely difficult and getting into a car is impossible.
So Mr Mauni rides a motorcycle on his regular pilgrimages across the Punjab.
However, his efforts are impressing many in the Sikh community.
Gurpreet Singh, who affectionately refers to Mr Mauni as Babaji - which means grandfather - says the giant turban has helped reawaken love for their religion among younger people.
He said: 'These days many Sikh children choose to cut their hair and have forgotten to wear turbans. But Babaji remind us of its importance, which is very good.
'The Sikh community can learn a lot from him and our children can learn that they should grow their hair and wear a turban.'
