Beautiful. Is this the one from which they make what we call in Marathi Gulkand.

Interesting question, because there is not much said about the exact rose species that is used for making gulkand.
Am afraid, this rose might not be the one used in making of gulkand. Not sure, please wait for comments.

Regards.
