Default Narghile of Fantastic Size

My cousin called today to tell me about his visit to a restaurant in Goa ( he recently got a job working at Mormumago Port for a shipping company) which has an amazing/ridiculous narghile ( huqqa is I think the local term) which he tried. The thing is something like 7 feet tall and about 2 and a half feet in diameter with six hoses. It seems to be made out brass and crystal with a bowl that holds a whole a whole tub of some sort of local Shisha like material. Apparently, loading the bowl requires a short ladder and takes quite a while. God only knows how you fill it with water or clean such a beast.

My cousin is not a big tobacco fan but he is not hostile to it either and he knows I like hearing about this sort of thing so he tried it out and reported back. Basically he said the smoke tasted like cinnamon, cardamon and jasmine which he thought was too strange to enjoy. Apparently, the other patrons thought it was a lot of fun and love the taste of what ever they smoked.

The whole rig sounds crazy to me and it must be insanely expensive to buy such a thing. Has anyone else ever heard of such a thing?

Yeap, seen it in real life and saw them on various sites for sale. Taller than a man, nice brass hookah w/ a glass insert in the middle. The one I saw real life had a lamp in the middle. The dude who owned it never tried to smoke out of it, was afraid to even try. LOL...

the bottom site has them on sale - but may have "issues"

Don't think I even want to try to smoke out of that monster - LOL!

Thanks for the links Sam. Those are some crazy narghiles and I can't imagine wanting something like around the house let alone using it. Well, I suppose that if the chance arose i'd give it a try once but somehow I think that getting a good draw would be tough and imagine having to manage the coals? Crazy.

I would think it would make a great piece of art, in a hookah room! Those hookahs are beautiful, and tall!

I would love to have the smaller of the two as a decorator piece, the 7 foot model wouldn't fit in my apt (ceiling is 7'3") - I wouldn't try smoking the thing - I just want the SHOCK valve.

But I could see it being a great piece for a Hookah Lounge...., in the front window or right by the door when you'd walk in - that would be killer!
