Nice Prakaant,

And I heard of Big Banyan Tree of Bangalore (Doda Alada Mara).

Wikipedia says is a giant Banyan tree located in the village of Ramohalli, 28 kilometers west of Bangalore and is one of the largest of its kind. It is said to be at least 400 years old
A few years back, the main root of the tree succumbed to natural disease, and thus the tree looks like many different trees now.

Imperial Towers (254 m), Tardeo, Mumbai - Tallest completed residential buildings in India.

NOTE TO MODS: I cant reduce size of the image. Please help!


Mod note: I have removed the photo as it was the tallest and widest . I suggest you upload it as an attachment instead.

I note that the photo was taken from Wikipedia. If you post photographs (or text) which are not your own you must give credit to the source by providing a link.
