Largest temple in the world

Hello,

  There was a posting recently saying,

'I also read in the guinnes book of
>world records for year 2001 about srirangm. The book wrote
>"The srirangam  temple complex in  Tiruchirappalli,  Tamil
>Nadu, India  is  the  largest  Hindu  temple in the world.'

  Since I wanted to get more info on this, I went to 
guinnessworldrecords.com    Surprisingly, there is no mention of 
Srirangam in it(atleast in this context.).   There was a mention of 
Largest buddhist temple and a largest Hindu temple outside India.  
But, I would like to confirm the above info before I give this piece 
of info to my kid.  Does anyone shed some light on this? 

Thanks
-Akila
