Beech, who is always in the south of the Tree of Life, and sometimes replaces the tree of life itself, is described in the Epic of Er Sogotoh, which tells about the existence of the first human being:

“When people came out of the house and looked south, it was seen that a large beech tree rose to the south. This beech tree is so beautiful that it resembles a young girl … ”

The first man, Er Sogotoh, moves in the direction of this beech tree and finds his wife and descends to the earth. Mother Umay, the protective spirit of women and children, descends to the earth and brings two beeches with her. Prayers made next to the beech tree reach God faster and are accepted more quickly.

It continues to be the balance of the world and everything that exists with its great and sublime body, giving calmness to souls with its presence.
