  • Kabirvad : Kabirvad is a small island in Gujarat's Bharuch district that is said to have been Saint Kabir's abode many hundred years ago. The island guarantees you a tranquil and serene abode behind the gigantic canopy of Banyan trees that Kabirvad is famous for.What started as a single Banyan tree in Kabirvad has emanated into over 3000 trunks currently, with the mother tree believed to be over 600 years old; interestingly, the tree population has grown manifold to such an extent that it is impossible to distinguish the mother tree from the other trees at present. The canopy of the banyan trees covers an enormous area of 17,520 square meters, with a radius of 641 meters.
