Bhringraj Flower Garland

Bhringraj Flower Garland

The photo was taken in Mana village, Chamoli, Uttarakhand. Upon query the shop-owner enhanced knowledge by saying – It is Bhringraj flower garland. Bhringraj flower is grown in Himalayas in the month of September – October. The flower garland can last up-to 20 – 25 years specially if saved from water. Rs. 300 the cost – she said. She also said it is also known as ban moti but I am not sure because during Badrinath visit a flower seller showed a garland made from tulsi, burans, genda, ban moti and the color of ban moti was purple.
