Live for peepal tree

A wonderful peepal tree near a fish pond, Khanewal, Paksitan.

Truly love the tree roots.

George Orwell rhapsodizes about the peepul tree in Burmese Days. .....Here a peepul tree grew, a great buttressed thing, six feet thick, woven of innumerable strands of wood, like a wooden cable twisted by a giant.

Hi there !

I have become passionate with peepal trees, or Ficus religiosa, and I am always looking at ways to increase my knowledge of this fantastic tree !

It seems to me that the roots of peepal trees don't like to stay inside water. But I may be wrong, so I'd like your feedback on this point.
- How high is the tree from water level ?
- are the roots directly in the water ?

I am asking you, because I am not sure I see clearly on your pictures. It seems like the tree is on higher ground, and I am not sure about the picture with the roots, if the roots are in the water or not.

Thanks a lot !

@Goustan BODIN
Thankyou for the comment. As you obviously can see, some roots are already in water but its also a fact that they can survive on less water as well.
