Hari OmA super specimen and well 'recorded'!!
Wonderful-magnificent tree- It is nice to see many Banyan trees in Mumbai-(-even in VT area -within a radius of 2 km-)The name was originally given to F. benghalensis-from travellers-Traders ( Banias) as the local /desi term goes In the Gujarati banya means "grocer/merchant.The term by 1600s was in English -ref banyan tree under which local merchants would do business.& rest shade-- merchants to sell their goods. Eventually "banyan" became the name of the tree itself.Few even call it as Vata Vriksha of Chp 15 Gita (Inverted tree -aerial roots) or realise it is in Shree Vishnu Sahasranama as Nygrodha (with Ashwattha & O/ U dumbara --Thanks,-rgds TR
Thank you so much for the information.
Looks like quite old.Nice capture
This reminded me of John Lennon's hair for some reason. And the song "Imagine" which was such a favorite in my time. If only the tree could sway these hanging roots and sing .....Imagine there's no trafficIt's easy if you tryNo potholes below usAbove us only skyImagine all the peoplebreathing free for today...Imagine there's no corporatorsIt isn't hard to doNothing to cheat or bribe forAnd no religion tooImagine all the peopleLiving life in peace...You may say I'm optimisticBut I'm not the only oneI hope someday you'll join usAnd the road will be as oneImagine no political bannersI wonder if you canNo need for decibeled slogansA silenthood of manImagine all the peopleSmiling at the world...You may say I'm optimisticBut I'm not the only oneI hope someday you'll join usAnd the world will live as on
That was a lovely take on one of my favourite songs!!
Great and an impressive shot of the mighty tree
Such trees are so very precious.
Wow - that is a magnificent tree!
I know I'm meant to be looking at the tree but when I see photos of India my eye is always drawn to the cars.
This tree is so huge, looks pretty...
There are a lot of banyan trees in south Florida - some quite large and beautiful like this one. I was interested in the road, though, which looks very narrow and unpaved. Any trip on that road will take some time, right?
Nice capture... Cool and shady .. A bit spooky too.
This must be some 500 year old tree if Iam not wrong ? Nice pic :)
No idea of the age
Nice click. Reminds me of childhood, when we would swing from the roots of the banyan tree near our house. Glorious days!
Great capture. Such a magnificent tree.
The Banyan Tree looks great..Lovely Capture.. :)
