Akshaya Vata: The Eternal Banyan Tree

It is believed that during the cyclic destruction of creation when the whole earth was enveloped with water, Akshaya Vrata remained unaffected. It is on the leaves of this tree that Lord Krishna rested in the form of a baby when land was no longer visible.

Legend also has it that the Bodi tree at Gaya is a manifestation of this tree. Dimension 36 inches x 48 inches.
