Dear Friends,

Vanakkam! Greetings from Chennai.

Last weekend (15 & 15 Nov, 2009) I had a chance to visit Trichur, Kerala. No wonder it is called “God’s Own Country”. Pristine beauty everywhere. Unfortunate to me, it was raining heavily and couldn’t venture out often.


At the break of every downpour, I managed to sneak around the immediate surroundings…




I saw this tree with large fruits in the central circle around the Vadakkunathan Temple. The fruits appeared like woodapple, which on a closer looked proved me wrong.


Location: 10. 48 N & 76.2 E (Google map)

Would like to learn the ID.


Thank you.

Hi, Ramjee,
