Dear Friend,
           In Ramayan Valmiki has mentioned KADAMABA.Scientific name of Kadamba is Anthocephalus cadamba.But there is another contender for KADAMBA,scientifically that tree is Mitragyna parviflora.In Mathura the second type of Kadamba is in plenty.But here in Bengal and in Assam first type is seen.Attaching images of both the type.
