The Big Banyan Tree

The Big Banyan Tree is the gigantic banyan tree, the largest tree in india sprawled in almost 3 acres of land, located at Ramohalli about 28 kilometres from Bangalore. It is very easily accessible by road, with clear signboards towards the location of the Banyan tree.  The tree is worshipped here. All around is a maze of roots, trunks and branches. The branches spread out in all directions, the roots dropping down touch the ground, new shoots develop, which turn into thick trunks. These trunks spread out more branches, it appears as if the tree is walking. Interestingly the banyan tree is called Bahupada in Sanskrit, meaning one with many legs.

This banyan tree (Ficus Benghalensis), is a 400-year-old tree that seems to have reached the end of its life span. The famous big banyan tree at Ramohalli, which is a stone’s throw away from Bangalore could be the ideal spot to unwind, away from the City’s hustle and bustle. The ageing of the tree has also necessitated some support to the branches and people are advised not to get too close to them. It is believed that the tree is symbolic of the trinity with the roots representing Brahma, the stems and the bark representing Vishnu and the branches symbolising Maheshwara. There is also a Shiva temple in the enclosure.
