  • The Parijatha tree grows in our garden. The Parijatha
    flower is a simple and beautiful one.
    These flowers bloom at night and their fragrance is
    is so pleasant and soothing.
    Every morning the flowers fall down and many a time
    look like a white and orange carpet on the ground.
    Even after falling they remain fresh for a long time.
    The different parts of the tree have medicinal value too.
    There are many stories related to this beautiful
    flower in our epics and Puranas.

    One of the stories is about Princess Parijataka. She was in
    love with Sun, but her love was never reciprocated. Having
    lost in love, she committed suicide and from her ashes rose
    the Parijatha tree. She is unable to bear the sight of her
    love during the day, so blooms only at night, and sheds
    the flowers as tears, before the sun rises.
