Another Peepal tree was planted adjacent to the old tree on 16-04-1963 by Late Sri. Ullal Srinivas Mallya (U.S. Mallya) the first MP of Udupi Lok Sabha Constituency.


The fallen Peepal tree said to have been planted hundreds of years back. Ten years back it was decided to discard as it was aging and dying. However a group of Poojarys decided to retain it and built a new platform around the tree.
