This is the most amazing attraction of a city which is a wonder of the Mother Nature . The groves of the Banyan tree from a single mother tree spread over a vast area is truly mind blowing .A wonder of the nature is worth visit . The distance from the city is to be planned it takes about 2... More

Aha, Big banyan tree. I reached this place after travelling for almost 2 hours from Bangalore, was always excited to see how a tree can cover the whole park of some acres and was excited to know about it. So during a weekend planned with few of my friends to visit the place. So after travelling for a while and... More

This is one of the oldest banyan tree. Kids might like this place. Not a regular place to visit. Nearby attractions include, manchinbele dam & mukthinaga temple.

It is big and it is a wonder. Kids love this place and sometimes adults become kids - swaying back and forth clutching the roots. It is a welcome break from the pace of Bangalore. Don't forget to visit the Sholay rock nearby.

I am not sure that this is worth going out of your way for but if you are in the vicinity you should stop and relax awhile here. It is awesome that one organism could grow to this size. It is also FULL of monkeys so make sure you are not displaying anything edible or shiny or they will try... More

As people say, there is nothing much here. Just visit if you have lots of time, or you want to spend some time on the way to mysore or Bangalore.. No point in going all the way till there just to visit there. Its only worth if you are passing by mysore road. Its a cool and calm place, Can... More

I really would not call this a tourist attraction nor would recommend it to travelers. The tree is very old and quite well maintained. But apart from walking around the roughly 2.5 acre area around the tree there is nothing much to do. And there are monkeys, so watch out. If you are on your way to Savandurga, you may... More

What a wasteful way to spend time. There is absolutely nothing here. What do you expect. There is a Big Banyan tree and a lot of roadside vendor. It is really worth travelling all the way from Bangalore on Mysore road and then travel inside for some more time to see a place which has absolutely nothing to office. Please... More
