The Simurgh was said to be a monstrous bird that lived in Asia. Chen told Dr Strauss and Anthony Hassall that the Simurgh caused the mirages they saw in the Karamakan desert.[1] Mehrzad Karimov held back from telling Marcel Delamare that the men from the mountains did not completely destroy the botanical research station because, as he later revealed to Malcolm Polstead, they were forced to flee by the Simurgh.[2]

The Simurgh also appeared as the king of the birds, leading the lovers into the rose garden, in the Tajik epic poem Jahan and Rukhsana.[2]
