It is said that this tree was born by chance from a seed of imported goods centuries ago and, this be true or not, it’s a really impressing plant to admire. The trunk is huge, so are the branches and its bark is extremely interesting to touch and see. If you love plants, it’s a must!

Just a short distance from town, this tree has to be seen to be believed, it is huge. Very low key, be careful not to miss it as you wander down the road

Out of the thirty odd Baobabs in Mannar the tree at Pallimunai is supposed to be the largest and with a known age of around 700 years. It is a fascinating tree with so much of horizontal growth that has occurred over centuries making it almost 21 meters in girth. The bark gives the appearance of stacked layers of burnt pan cakes. This tree species which hail from Africa and believed to have been introduced to Mannar by ancient traders has become a significant proof to the flourishing naval port in the area which had been patronised by foreign travellers and traders in the ancient times.

This tree is said to be 900 years old. Baobab tree is unique as the formation is as if the roots are upwards and above ground !
