Leaves of the peepal tree

The peepal is the first-known depicted tree in Pakistan as a seal discovered at Mohenjodaro, one of the oldest cities of the Indus Valley Civilization, shows the peepal tree being worshipped.

The peepal leaves are of heart-shaped, with a distinctly extended tip. Dried peepal leaves are used for decoration purposes. The peepal leaves are collected, cleaned, dried and then painted in order to preserve them for the future.

Peepal leaves are of heart shaped and so does their use, the leaves of peepal trees are effective against many diseases of heart.

Nowadays, some new uses of peepal leaves have been introduced by technology lovers. I don't know if this technique actually works or not but according to the news, now we can charge our mobile battery for sometime with peepal leaves. To know more about this discovery, read step by step guide to charge your mobile battery using peepal leaves here.

Hi Mania, What a lovely tree and how nice it is to meet another tree lover! I like not only the leaves but the trunk. It has a great form.

What an interesting blog, and interesting info about this tree. I wonder if all heart shaped leaves help heart diseases in humans.

I have never heard of this plant and of course I didn't know you could charge a phone with the leaves! This info might come in handy if I'm ever stranded without my charger! Thanks for sharing this post :)
