DAILY PHOTO: 824 Year Old Magnolia Tree

Taken on March 30, 2014 near Madikeri.

Taken on March 30, 2014 near Madikeri.

This tree near Madikeri in Coorg is believed to have sprouted in 1190. That means it was living when:

-Jerusalem was recaptured during the 3rd Crusade.

-Genghis Khan came to power.

-the Magna Carta was issued.

-the Aztecs built Tenochtitlan.

-the first Black Plague struck.

 

I could go on and on, but you get my drift.

[Please note: Correlation does not equal causation. I’m not implying that the afore-pictured tree had anything to do with any of the aforementioned events.]
