Sri Lanka Peradeniya Gardens

Located not far outside Kandy are the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens. A very nice place to walk around looking at various plants and themes

There was an outstanding Java Fig tree - it covers an area equivalent to 7 tennis courts

We saw a number of people looking up at a tree.  It was a nice tree, but there had to be more to it than initially met the eye.

Perhaps this might give a clue - just like the movie symbol
Yes, a fruit bat colony. 

A gardner said they could be up to 1 metre across.

And we did notice that the gardens were the place young courting couples came to.  Everywhere we turned another pair quietly sitting in the shade
