Dear Everyone

This plant was photographed in the beginning of the year at periyar tiger reserve. The tribals call it Kalyana Sougandikam and told me an interesting story

Apparently  Panchali ( Droupadi) wanted this flower and send Bheem  looking for it. Where he found the flower was also where he faced Hanuman...... and the rest of the story is well known.

The fragrance of this flower is something to be experienced, pervades strongly in the forest, greeting you long before you can come close to it.

best wishes

Dear All
This Bauhinia has figured in this group before. So apologies for posting it again. Just need confirmation that it is indeed Bauhinia purpurea.

The second one posted is also for confirmation ( Justicea) and identification of species if possible.
Thank you and best wishes

Greetings--

 The flower looks somewhat like the white form of Duranta repens, but the foliage does not look correct. How large are the individual flowers?

 Could be some sort of Acanthaceae?

Dear Mr.Greby
The flowers are definitely bigger in size than the violet form of Duranta that i know. And the inforescence is also not of the same kind.This is a climber.

Hi Nudrat,
Looks like Anogeissis latifolia by seeing the bark.
