Banyan Tree, SaiNgam

Moon River Resort Phimai

 

 

Banyan Tree/Sai Ngam

 

In the immediate vicinity of our Thai houses along Moon River you can see one of the world’s

most immense tree plants – an Indian ficus.

 

Over the course of several centuries many of its aerial roots have turned into trunks so that today

their intertwined branches cover an area of 30,000 square feet.

The light and shadow effects of this great tree are sanguine and restful.

 

To most Thais the area is “holy ground”, and once a year in April they celebrate and venerate

the “Mother of Sai Ngam”.
