We decided on a detour to the Big Banyan tree during a recent trip from Bangalore to Mysuru. The 400-year old tree is in a 3-4 acre park which is rather well maintained with a walkway surrounding the sprawling tree. However, the extent of preservation...More

This place is very nice and green. It has been restored to save from indiscriminate cutting of trees. This should be a must visit with the family especially children.

I had visited this place with family. This place is offset on Mysore Road and amidst a village approach with narrow road. If you're a nature lover or kind of environmental person, you would love this place, otherwise a no go.

The continuous rows of Banyan trees are a treat to behold. Though the monkeys play a spill sport grabbing what ever you are holding in your hand, this place is a treat to your eyes.

The place has a Big Banyan tree which is a few hundered years old. The tree is in itself is quite gigantic. Beyond this there is not much to visit and one can plan it as a short visit.

Yes I think you could do it , but as I said , the tree is fenced off , to avoid vandals writing their names on the tree . You can take photos from outside only , unless you get a permission from local wardens or managers
