Red Pagoda Tree (Krishnakireedam)

I like the vibrancy in colors of this beautiful flower, commonly seen here in the wild. It might have got its name from its pagoda like shape, which is very unique. And in Malayalam it is known as 'Krishnakireedam' (Lord Krishna's Crown). The flower resembles the Crown of Krishna in the temple art form 'Krishnanattam'.

Species: Clerodendrum paniculatum.

Wish you all a very Happy Deepavali.
