Sacred tree opts for dual gender | Thaiger

SURAT THANI: A 400-year-old tree with branches that resemble male and female genitals has brough villagers flocking to look. Charoen Sriyong, 60, of Tambon Pak Praek in Don Sak, took reporters to see a 20-meter Lagerstroemia tree and pointed out the two limbs, each about 50 cms long. One pointing upwards resembled a penis, while another pointing downwards resembled the female genitalia. K. Charoen said people believe that the tree is sacred and have tied a red cloth around its trunk and put up a sign inviting people to see the “Tha-Yai” (grandfather-grandmother) tree.
