The Ancient banian tree of Bao Hamlet (Tan Lac district)
This ancient banian tree is over 200 years old. To measure its circumference by joining arms around the trunk would take as many as 44 people.
This tree, originates from a banian branch which traditionally was used as a tent pillar for a newlywed couple. During the resistance wars fought against the French and Americans, this tree served as a safe shelter for troops. Nowadays, in the shade of this magnificent tree, villagers often gather together to chat and have a drink. Sitting under the tree at night, basked in moon light, one feels dwarfed by the infinitive universe that unfolds above.
