Giant Hollow banyan tree in western Bali
Bunut Bolong is a massive hollow banyan tree located in Manggisari, Jembrana, West Bali. This ancient banyan tree is a natural monument revered by locals who believe it to be centuries old. There have been reports of people dying while attempting to cut it down to remove it.
At both ends of the tree's straddling base are shrines draped in yellow and white cloths. The big hole in the centre of the tree grew naturally and has grown to be as broad as the road that runs through it. The route connects the west Bali settlement of Pekutatan with the north coast of Bali. Getting to North Bali via the middle highlands is normally an alternative way.
