Dodda Aalada Mara

Location: Tavarekere, Dodda Aladmara Road, Uttarahalli Hobli, Bengaluru, Karnataka 562130.

The Dodda Aalada Mara, literally translated to Big Banyan Tree, is a giant approximately 400-year-old banyan tree (Ficus benghalensis) located in the village of Kethohalli in the Bangalore Urban district of Karnataka, India. This single plant covers 3 acres (1.2 ha) and is one of the largest of its kind. In the 2000s, the main root of the tree succumbed to natural disease, and thus the tree now looks like many different trees.
