I was under the impression that the Gulmohr was indigenous to India, but in fact is found to grow throughout the world. It is apparently native to Madagascar.
In the Caribbean, its seeds are used to make the musical instrument known as the Maracas.
Here are some pictures of Gulmohrs that I shot in different parts of the world, separated by several thousand miles (the camera is an old, but brilliant Olympus C-3030Z).
Gulmohr, Islamorada, Florida Keys, USA, 2003.
Small Gulmohr, Kailua-Kona, the Big Island, Hawaii, USA, 2003.
Gulmohr, Mahe, Seychelles, Indian Ocean, 2006.
Gulmohr, Cayman Islands, the Caribbean, 2008.
