Chenar-e Emamzadeh Saleh
Thehran, Tajrish, drawn in 1887
In 1881, Ms. Dieulafoy was much impressed by a colossal, odd-looking Oriental Plane in “Tajreesh” masque. in northern Tehran.
Its circumference reached “nearly fifteen meter”, shaded the activities of a great many people. Including a primary school master and his classes, and a Ghahve-chi (tea-shop keeper) who had installed his Samavar and his paraphernalia inside the hollow trunk in tree base.
H.Rawlinson said that in “Tajreesh”, … he measured a great Chenar which had a girth of 108 feet at 5 feet from the ground.
