Abundance of Banyan Trees

Sai Ngam - Abundance of Banyan Trees

Another attraction of Phimai District, it is the abundance of Banyan trees all originating from a single tree which is about 350 years now. "Sai Ngam" is Thai name ("Sai" or "Ton Sai" means Banyan tree and "Ngam" means beautiful) So far the tree gave birth to many smaller ones covering the entire area.
