The banyan fig tree is famous for its aerial roots, which sprout from branches and eventually reach the soil. In India, the Banyan Tree is considered to be one of the most venerated trees. For centuries, it has been likened to the shelter that God provides for his devotees. Other references to the Banyan tree come in the form of it being known as the “Tree of Life.”
The tree in the image below is in Kayavarohan and is believed to be over 250 years old.
