Walk the Tree Talk
Join us for an outdoor meeting in the beautiful gardens of The Theosophical Society, Adyar. We will walk up to the Great Banyan tree and around. Prof D Narasimhan, a well-known tree enthusiast and botanist in the city, will guide us in our walk. He will talk to us about different trees as we come across them, their features and other interesting facts about them.
The Great Banyan Tree or Adyar Ala Maram as it is known locally, is the second largest banyan tree in the world and is believed to be about 450 years old. Although the main trunk suffered storm damage a few decades ago, the rest of the tree survives and thrives.
For entrance, please use the gates on Besant Avenue. (NOT the gate
opposite Fortis Malar Hospital)
Please assemble at The Library (which is the first building on your right when you enter the campus through the gate on Besant Avenue) at 8.45 a.m.
Please note: This meeting starts earlier and will last longer than the usual meeting. The meeting is scheduled to conclude around 10.30 a.m. The actual walk will last for about an hour. You may not have close access to rest rooms.
We have place for 35 members. Please warn-in by messaging
