Cannonball Tree at Someshwara Temple, Bangalore

I found this wonderful looking tree in Someshwara temple. Cannonball tree (Couroupita guianensis) is an evergreen tree native to tropical northern South America.
The trees are grown extensively in Shiva temples in India. It is considered a sacred tree among Hindus because the flower resembles a nagam or a sacred snake on the central large shiva lingam and numerous shivalingams around.
