Dodda Aladha Mara - Review
As the name suggests, this is a gigantic Banyan tree that dots the landscape of Bangalore. Located at Ramohalli, this is a 400 years old tree and covers an area of 3 acres. One of the largest of its type, this tree looks ravishing with a crown circumference of more than 250 meters and more than a thousand aerial roots. The best part about this tree is that it gives immense shade thereby adding to a beautiful vision of greenery and cool shade all around. People visit this place as a picnic spot. What adds to the beauty of this place is the backdrop of Savanadurga hill and the backwaters of the Manchanabele reservoir. Do pay a visit here for a perfect communion with nature.

Dodda Aladha Mara, Bengaluru Reviews
One time place with family and friends. It is an old banyan tree and good to go with a group. You can sit here, chat and eat some snacks to spent time. Small place where you can spend not more than 1-2 hour. Lot of monkeys, may be kids will like this place more. Good ride from Bangalore via nice ring road on a cloudy day. Not too much crowded and kind of peaceful. Good place for nature lover..and will get good fresh air and peaceful mind
Really very large tree. Branches coming out from the main tree are becoming trees for themselves. I find it one of it's kind. Nice place to spend 2-3 hours. Beware of monkeys, there are plenty of them. One or two more places like temples, nurseries are near by to spend some time. Visit during monsoon or winter could be more pleasant.
Good place to enjoy an hour or so and admire the nature. It's difficult to figure out the original root of this big banyan tree. This tree must have seen a lot in its 400 years of life. Tourism department can do so much more to make this place a real tourist attraction.

Good place to visit for nature lovers.. And it has some history which makes it even more an interesting place. Monkeys are everywhere and they tend to take away everything you carry, so be cautious. And on route to this place you get tons of big nurseries you could have ever imagined. Traveller's are free to get in and check out plants and even buy if they like it. Overall it's good for a one day short trip near Bangalore.
