Bhringraj Flower Garland

Bhringraj Flower Garland at Mana Village, Uttarakhand, India

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