SIMURGH roosted in the Tree of Life which contained the seeds of all plants. When she took flight, the seeds floated around the world & made the plants which were remedy and cure for all diseases.
SIMURGH made her most famous appearance in Ferdowsi's epic Shahnameh in which she instructed a surgical procedure to deliver a baby including the use of surgical knife, anesthesiology, and surgical operation. The baby became the greatest Persian hero who served the nation. SIMURGH gave some important & valuable pieces of advice to the hero and helped him to achieve an important triumph against his chief rivals.
