Nguyen Thi Dinh, 76, is considered the person who has the longest hair in Vietnam. Her hair is over five meters long.
Dinh,who now lives at the Hue Phuoc temple in the southern province of Ben Tre,has never cut or washed her hair since she was 19.
The temple’s Venerable Thich Tri Duc says that many people go to his temple not only to worship Buddha, but also to see Dinh’s extraordinary hair.
The monk says that on average, around 200 people go to the temple each day, and the number sometimes rises to 400-500
Dinh is a woman of very few words, with a kind face. She always asks visitors not to photograph or film nor touch her hair. She says that she feels tired when hundreds of people come to see and try to touch her hair every day.
