Picture 1 is the famous chalta/chalita tree we talked about earlier. It is the picture of a single horizontal branch of the chalta tree hanging closest to the ground. The chalta tree is located on the northeast corner of the Gambhira temple adjoining the westward exit/entrance door to the Gambhira temple. The full chalta tree with a view of the peak of the temple can be seen in the panoramic picture tour of the Gambhira Temple screen in an earlier hyperlink.

Picture 2 is the picture of the famous Bakul Tree, as can be viewed beside the cocoanut treeline in front of a taller tree on the back. This bakul tree has been standing there since Prabhu Jagadbandhusundar established Sri-Angan in 1899. This bakul tree must have witnessed a lot Prabhu's Lilas with his devotees, the specifics of which will be outlined at a later time.

Picture 3 is the trunk containing the primary boughs of the chalta tree. On the wall to the left is written a poem of four short lines in Bengali alphabets to indicate the significant relationship of Jagadbandhu with this chalta/chalita tree.
