    ร่มไทร

    I looked up ไทร and found it is a banyan or ficus tree. So is ร่มไทร an umbrella made from a leaf? Or a shady tree?

    Re: ร่มไทร

    I keep on second guessing myself and I don't want to tell you the wrong thing
    about ร่มไทร I think is better translated as tree shade. I know that might sound weird b/c ...it does to me anyway...but I am thinking that might be a better translation.

    I think shade tree works better in the context.

    ที่บริเวณใต้ร่มไทร

    I would say ที่บริเวณใต้ต้นไทร but I heard many people say ที่บริเวณใต้ร่มไทร too

    Another meaning: ร่มโพธิ์ร่มไทร
    พ่อแม่เป็นร่มโพธิ์ร่มไทรของลูก
    ในหลวงทรงเป็นร่มโพธิ์ร่มไทรของพสกนิกรชาวไทย
    ร่มโพธิ์ร่มไทร in these contexts means they are our protector, give us supports, love, compassion, etc.

    โพธิ์ – Bodhi tree, the Lord Buddha sat under Bodhi tree while he was enlightening.

    Re: ร่มไทร

    ร่มไทร = shade of ไทร tree.

    ไทร is a very big tree and can live a hundred year or longer. According to the size, it gives big shade making people feel calm. Many people believe that there are a spirit in each ไทร tree so sometimes you'll see ศาลพระภูมิ under a ไทร tree. People don't usually cut the tree too.
