English: Dodda Alada Mara or Doda Alada Mara, literally translated to Big Banyan Tree, is a giant 400 year old Banyan tree (Ficus bengalensis), located in the village of Kettohalli in the Bangalore Urban district of Karnataka, India. This single Banyan covers three acres (12,000 m2) and is one of the largest of its kind. It has a crown circumference of more than 250 meters and has more than a thousand aerial roots. In the 2000s, the main root of the tree succumbed to natural disease, and thus the tree now looks like many different trees.
