Bunut Bolong is a giant hollow banyan tree in the village of Manggisari in Jembrana, West Bali. This old, giant banyan tree is a natural landmark that’s sanctified by locals. They believe the tree is centuries old. There are tales of people who met their demise trying to chop it down to remove it. The tree has a large hollow at its base. This formed naturally, and is as wide as the main road that runs through it. Temple shrines adorned in yellow and white cloths are at both ends of the banyan tree’s straddling base.
