PHUKET CITY: More has been revealed about the amazing life of Luang Pu Supha, claimed by adherents to be the oldest man in the world.
Luang Pu Supha, abbot of a temple named after him in Chalong, is preparing to celebrate his 113th birthday in Phuket next week.
Government-issued identification records presented to the Gazette show he was born on September 17, 1896.
If accurate, the birth date would make Luang Pu Supha four days older than American Walter Breuning, who currently claims the Guinness World Records’ title of ‘Oldest Living Man’.
Thanapong Korudom, President of the Wat Luang Pu Supha committee, said he would like to invite Guinness World Records to come to Phuket and verify that Luang Pu Supha is the oldest living man in the world.
