					Banyan Fig Tree
Notice it creates a sort of labyrinth or maze.
Alexander the Great’s entire army once camped under a
             single Indian Banyan Fig Tree
  The Banyan often symbolizes
eternity and eternal life due to its
 seemingly unending expansion
      The Banyan is an
  epiphyte, meaning it
    starts out by using
another tree as its host
    which it eventually
  supplants. Thus it is
     often a symbol of
 sexuality and the way
    sensual desire can
   overcome humans.
The Banyan is considered a divine, wish
    granting tree in some cultures.




While it is home to spirits and demon-
       like creatures in others.
