Panch Pandav Tree Overview

Ranked 6 of 7 sightseeing in Khajjiar

The Panch Pandav Tree is situated in the ground of Khajjiar. The tree is famous for its shoots. Although the main root of the tree and the shoots are same, there are six shoots branching out from the tree.

According to the local inhabitants, the five shoots of this tree stand for the Five Pandavas and the last one symbolises Draupadi. This tree is close to a rest house that leads the way to Khajjiar School and a small village.

In the forest of Khajjiar, trees having many shoots are a common sight. There is one deodar tree that stands a kilometre away from Khajjiar on the way to Dalhousie. It has 13 shoots of standard height. The tree has acquired the name of “Mother Tree” of the entire region.

Also known as mother tree

This tree is also known as mother tree and is so large. We saw it many years back but now it has been felled. It was believed that the five pandavas rested here during their exile. All in all, the location is fabulous situated in the midst of Deodar forest. Fabulous experience.

Panch Pandav

Yet another example of mythology being wrongly attributed in a scientific occurrence. This tree has six shoots coming out of a single root attributing to the five Pandavs and Draupadi. It is inside the main ground of Khajiiar.
