A holy site in Gayā (Gaya in modern day Indian state of Bihar) where a vaṭa vṛkṣa (vata vriksha), or banyan tree, stands.

Performing obsequies to honour one’s departed forefathers at this place by making offerings of rice would ascertain their attaining heaven for eternity. The spot is so sacred that if a person offers a meal with simply a serving of vegetables or even water to only one brahmaṇa (brahmana), they may acquire the puṇya (punya) of serving a million brahmaṇa.
