Ayurveda in Circle Bakote
Circle Bakote is in practice of human treatment with local herbs since millenniums. Sunyasies (Herbal Doctors) were handled illness and sickness with Kakhs (Herbs) and people believed them unconditionally with blind faith. They had many powders (Safoof) and syrups (Sharbat) for release of pain and long illness. They advised people to use blood of animals for restoration of their sex power, use mushroom for relief in nerves pain and white meet for the best health care. They used a mixture of powerful food for woman after delivery that prepared by dry fruits, gee and floor. They have a composition of medicine named OKLAIT used in belly pain relief. They used cuts in Cathartic pain relief.  The also invented a special food called OREYA, made by milkshake, oily seeds powder and melon. It was a very delicious recipe of that time.

Herbs of Circle Bakote
 These plants were grown by a plant enthusiast and you will not find any wild plants of hydrangea over there. There are two variants available there. The tall one which is common one. The dwarf one is perhaps imported one.Clematis, queen of flowering vine. This is true wild clematis species in Circle Bakote, Galyat & Murree Hills and other Galiyat region native to hilly areas. This one seems to be clematis Armanda i guess. Fragrant large flowers in clusters. Chrysanthemum leucanthemum daisy. Another wild flower of  Circle Bakote, Galyat & Murree Hills is full of these honeysuckle shrubs. I thought they might be lonicera japonica but it is a climber not a small tree. So it is some lonicera shrub or small tree with mildly fragrant flowers. The yellow iris flowers. They are not wild but grown in many home gardeners in the Circle Bakote, Galyat & Murree Hills. Lupin, another plant which likes cool climate. flowers are small and stalks are never as tall. <Read more>
