banyan temple

There are two temples on the island with huge banyan trees outside. One is much more well-known than the other, as it has the older tree - some 300 years old. Quite huge - it's actually two trees that have intertwined over the many years. The other one is only a bit more than 200 years, but it's much, much quieter - after all, who wants to see a spry 200-year-old tree when they can see an ancient 300-year-old tree? I liked the quiet one. The temple was nicer as well. (This is that temple.)
