Ramohalli , a tiny village a few kilometres to the right of the Bangalore-Mysore highway is home to the 400 years old giant Banyan tree. Spread over an area of more than 3 acres, this is boasted as one of the largest surviving trees in India. In fact a whole “park” is under the canopy of this Banyan. A small road goes adjacent to the Rarajeswari Dental Collage that is facing the Mysore road. This road then crosses the railway line . After overtaking half a dozen or so bullock-carts on the way you reach this giant Banyan.
