About

The Big Banyan Tree is maintained by a public sector bank and is now popularly called Dodda Alada Mara Udyanavana (in Kannada ) literally translated to the Big Banyan Tree Garden. It has become popular among places to visit in Bangalore. Also, the fact that is located only 3km from the Manchanbele Dam, it highly makes for a quick weekend destination for the city dwellers. The tree is located in a small park, the entire area of which is covered by the banyan tree. The tree in itself is huge and beautiful. The main trunk does not exist anymore but the aerial prop roots have matured into very thick trunks. Apparently, it is one of the oldest trees in India, along with other banyan trees in Chennai and Andhra Pradesh.
