The Immortal Banyan Tree

The Immortal Banyan Tree at Jyotisar, Kurukshetra in Haryana, India. This tree has supposedly witnessed Lord Krishna delivering the sermon of Bhagwad Gita. This place is named as the Gitopadesh sthal – place where the Bhagavad-Gita was spoken.


Local traditions say that this tree is an offshoot of the holy Banyan tree under which Lord Krishna delivered the sermon of Bhagavad Gita, the doctrine of Karma and Dharma to his wavering friend Arjuna. It is here that He showed his Virat rupa (Universal form).
