There is an interesting story behind this tree and the horse like figures you see below it. I recently visited a tribal village, in the remote part of my state ,where I came across this tree and its significance. There is a belief among the tribal people of the region ,that, whatever they wish for, is granted to them if they pray to the tree. Once their wish is granted, they come back here, and put a terracotta horse below the tree. Sometimes they also put a religious flag on the branch of the tree. This is done after some religious ceremony is performed. When I visited the place, there were around 40,000 terracotta horses below the tree!!!
