Family builds their house around a 150-year-old tree

A family in Jabalpur has come up with a novel way of dealing with an ancient giant fig tree in their garden -- they built the house around it.

Now the thick trunk of the 150-year-old tree is the central feature of their residence, growing through the middle of the building.

The four-storey building is a local landmark because of its unique facade. Leafy branches jut out from the windows, dwarfing the building and prompting curious looks from passersby.
