The Big Banyan Tree is located at a distance of 28 km from Bangalore and is situated close to the Bangalore–Mysore road. The most well-known feature of the tree is that it is 400 years old and covers an area of 3 acres. The Savanadurga hill and the backwaters of the Manchanabele reservoir, which form the backdrop of the tree, further enhance the beauty of the place. The place will give you all the shelter you need under those big and broad tree trunks. One of those places which serve both as a getaway and as a picnic spot. Ideal to visit with your partner or friends.
