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.
