    Check Out A 255-Year-Old Tree That Walks At The Botanical Gardens

    Fatema posted on 12 June

    If your tiny tots haven’t seen the grand old banyan tree at the Indian Botanical Garden then they ain’t seen nothing yet. Considered to be the oldest citizen of the city, this tree has been in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the largest canopy and covering the widest circumference. And it keeps walking! (Er, growing!). With the prop roots as its legs, the Great Banyan Tree is heading eastward and always threatening to cross fences built around it. It’s like a miniature forest in itself with a thick canopy overhead and ferns and orchids growing on its branches. Many a fauna, including mongoose, jackals and birds, have made the tree their home. Your little ones would love to stand under its shade and experience its enormity.
