The sacred trees

In northern Ethiopia, Aksoum is home to a sycamore fig that is nearly two hundred years old. Once deified, it stands today as an immobile witness to believers' orthodox rites. 4,000 km away, in the Indian state of Punjab, the inhabitants of Cholti Kheri venerate an immense banyan tree.
