Here is a query from Suresh ji:
"Garg Sahib, Isnt it the same which we call as Din Ka Raja, with fragrant flowers during day time.
I had one in my home garden many years before.
Regards,
Suresh"

In Bengal, Rat ki Rani is known to attract snakes. Can that be true?
Thanks.

Hi, Sushmita ji, as per this very interesting & 'good read' link on 'Snakes and common misbeliefs': http://userpages.umbc.edu/~sjoshi1/mirror/snakemiscon.shtml
"Snakes like the sweet pungent smell of the kevada or the raat-ki-rani. This is an unproven statement. "
