I liked the grandness of this tree. this tree is witness to the centuries of activities of civilizations on this planet earth. It stands like a symbol of immortality upon this earth. It defies death's dictum. A symbol of generosity, patience, and immortal growth.

This huge tree as the board says is a very old tree and we had not seen a teak tree as big as this. We were taken here as part of the organised safari by the forest dept in their bus.
