Photographer's Note

The National Tree of India is The Banyan Tree. This huge tree towers over its neighbors and has the widest reaching roots of all known trees, easily covering several acres. It sends off new shoots from its roots, so that one tree is really a tangle of branches, roots, and trunks. The banyan tree regenerates and lives for an incredible length of time--thus it is thought of as the immortal tree.
Its size and leafy shelter are valued in India as a place of rest and reflection, not to mention protection from the hot sun! It is still the focal point and gathering place for local councils and meetings. India has a long history of honoring this tree; it figures prominently in many of the oldest stories of the nation

This Shot of a Banyan tree was taken at small coastal village in Rameshwaram, under this tree there is one small family deity temple where devotees regularly comes for prayers. I like the magnificent growth of this tree which covers larger giving spectacular view and shade to devotees.
