One Large and Ancient Tree

Posted: Updated:

Believed to be nearly450 years old, it's considered to be one of world's oldest banyan trees.

The sprawling branches of one of the largest trees in the world cover 40,000 sq feet and it measures 238 feet from north to south and 250 feet from east to west.

The aerial roots of this tree have become well- rooted and the entire tree appears like a bunch of several trees.

Many residents are upset that many people are unaware of the tree's existence and they take necessary steps to safeguard the tree so that coming generations get to watch this ancient tree.
