Indians have set a new world record by performing a mass rendition of the National Anthem.
The “Jana Gana Mana” anthem was sung by 509,261 people in Gujarat at the opening of a temple.
The event attracted close to 1 million people according to the auditors, but only the above number could be accommodated in the record attempt area.
The feat was accomplished in late January but only validated recently by Guinness World Records.
It smashes the previous record of roughly 254,500 set in the Bangladesh capital Dhaka in 2014.
