Hindus allocated one tree to every temple and made them holy. It helped to save environment. It helped to save and grow more forest. Every temple has a garden called Nanda Vanam. Because of the Muslim invaders and their destructive activities it slowly dis appeared in North India. But in the South several big and famous temples maintain the old tradition.

 

In the same way Hindus designated one tree for every star. Hindus cast their horoscope when a baby is born and it falls under one of the 27 stars in the Zodiac. That means each one will take care of their tree or plant, worship it and respect it.

 

The following list is taken from Malayalam sources; so the plants names are in Malayalam
