The Ficus religiosa, also known as the Peepul tree or Sacred fig, is a species of fig native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. It is not only an ornamental tree but has great medicinal value, with its leaves being used as a laxative and tonic for the body. This tree has religious significance in three major religions – Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. According to Buddhist legend, Gautama Buddha attained enlightenment under a Ficus religiosa. The tree is also considered sacred by Hindu and Jain ascetics who often meditate under them. With a lifespan of up to 1,500 years, this tree can grow up to 90 ft tall. Its leaves are unique in shape and have a distinctive extended drip tip, while its small figs grow to be about 1-1.5 cm in diameter. The Ficus religiosa has been introduced and cultivated around much of the world and is tolerant to widely varying climatic conditions, making it a valuable addition to any garden or park in tropical and subtropical climates.
