  • Tree was magnificent!! So wonderful to find shade from the hot Maui sun. One issue That I found distasteful was homeless sleeping on the majority of the benches.

  • Exquisite banyan court. The tree is massive and is a very cool thing to visit. Love how the tree is supported by many other trees. Make sure to go through the entire circle to appreciate all of it. Mid day is a good time to go when the crowd seems to be less.
  • Other than the homeless taking refuge under the largest tree in the northern hemisphere. It is definitely something to see in person, branches going for a 100 feet if not more in each direction. Though man has inverted with it's growth to get it so big it is worth seeing. The museum and historical landmarks nearby are fascinating as well.
