Akshay Vat - SHUKARTAAL
This 5100-year-old Banyan Tree is nothing short of miraculous. Akshay Vat Vatika towering height of 150 feet and sprawling roots are enough to intimidate anyone. It is considered a living representation of Sage Sukhdeva. It is believed that he sat under this tree and recited the Shrimad Bhagwad Puranas to King Parikshit, Arjun’s grandson, for 7 simultaneous days. The tree is hence seen as an emblem of divinity, truth, forgiveness and sacredness. The tree has been given a special name, the Tree of Undying Character, as it doesn’t shed any of its leaves. This Holy tree is visited by devotees, who tie a red thread around it to fulfill their wishes.
