SB 4.6.31 — They also saw that the bathing ghāṭas and their staircases were made of vaidūrya-maṇi. The water was full of lotus flowers. Passing by such lakes, the demigods reached a place where there was a great banyan tree.
SB 4.6.32 — That banyan tree was eight hundred miles high, and its branches spread over six hundred miles around. The tree cast a fine shade which permanently cooled the temperature, yet there was no noise of birds.
SB 4.6.33 — The demigods saw Lord Śiva sitting under that tree, which was competent to give perfection to mystic yogīs and deliver all people. As grave as time eternal, he appeared to have given up all anger.

Vidagdha read an excellent description written by Sridhara Maharaja on the structure of the universe reflected in the gayatri mantra of levels of consciousness corresponding to different universal realms. He also talked about meditation in general since Lord Siva’s meditation under a banyan tree was mentioned.
