Though after a thousand years’ wind and rain, the banyan tree survived with lush branched and foliage. The tree looks like a huge green umbrella and its shadow can cover an area more than 100 square meters. When at summer time, people like to sit in the shadow of the banyan tree and have some leisure time.

The Big Banyan Tree also got its fame because of the film Sanjie Liu was partly shot there. It is under this big banyan tree where Sanjie Liu, the heroin of the film, expressed her love and gave an embroidered ball to A’niu, the hero of the film. The beautiful love story adds more charm to the Big Banyan Tree.
