Once your are there, you are face to face with the mighty tree. It stands out amidst lush fields. It has to be seen to believe that the canopy of the tree spreads over 3 to 4 Acres of land. According to local information, the tree is a few hundred years old. It is also known as the ‘Kaya Kalp Vriksh’.
The local belief is that nobody can stop the relentless spread of the tree. As the tree is surrounded by private land, the adjoining land owners dare not cut any branch which may grow and cover their land. It is believed that any person in the past who tried to stop the spread of the tree had to face grave misfortunes. The usage of waste wood or fallen leaves of the tree is considered equally unpropitious. Thus, the great banyan tree continues to grow undisturbed.
