Itz a banyan tree. Not much ppl. know, but it converts maximum amount of Carbon dioxide to Oxygen per cu. m of wood. So the environment around Banyan tree is rich of oxygen and was being used for meditation by Saints for thousands of years. So it is given the word Bodhi in sanskrit, means enlightenment, knowledge, wisdom.
