BNHS Conservation Education Centre @ Goregaon, Mumbai is hosting a week long Karvi Festival starting late August and ending early September to celebrate rare blooming of Karvi flowers which happens once in 8 years around neighboring area of Mumbai and Western Ghats.
Today I had opportunity to join the festival to see these beautiful purplish flowers. The next bloom will happen in 2024. More info about these flowers are here at Wikipedia.
Enjoy the pics! 🙂
