Appropriately named ‘Nagaraja’ (dragon king), the giant kite stretched 249.75 meters down the Sanur beach.

The 707 kilogram kite apparently required some 200 people to help fly it. The width of the kite measured 11.25 meters and had to be flown with a 300-meter long rope. Four trucks were even reportedly needed to bring the kite over to the beach!

Kadek Suprapta Meranggih, kite section chairman of Banjar Dangin Peken, said the magnificent Nagaraja, made by residents of his banjar, broke the record logged by the Indonesian World Records Museum (MURI).

“We managed to break the MURI record as the largest and longest kite in Indonesia,” Meranggih told Tribun Bali

Record-breaking or no, this kite sure is stunning!
