Yesterday night I was very fortunate to meet one of the rarely seen stunning beauty called, ‘The Night Queen’. No, don’t mistake me; I am talking about a flower called ‘Night Queen’ or ‘Brahma Kamala’. I got the luck at my house owner’s residence in Shankarpuram, Bangalore. Before this, I had only heard of it & had never got an opportunity to enjoy the prettiness of this flower. Below are some of the pics taken during this rare occasion. Thanks to Raghu (my roomy) for his good work behind the camera.
About Brahma Kamala
Brahma Kamala is a divine flower.It gets its name because of the story behind the Lord Brahma’s birth in the Hindu mythology. The Lord Brahma is said to have born from the lotus springing from the Vishnu’s novel.
The flowers bloom only once in a year. They start blooming only after the sunset & bloom completely by midnight. They won’t stay alive for a long time; they droop just after few hours from complete blooming.
