It is said that Narilatha flower plants grow in the Himalayan region in India and they bloom at 20-year intervals. The trance of hermits is said to be shattered at the sight of these flowers which are in the shape of women .This flower was in the shape of a naked woman, and said to be as a rare flower.

It is called the Narilatha flower, which when translated in Hindi means flower in the shape of a lady. It is also called the Liyathabara Mala in local Sri Lankan dialect. The tree is also said to be found in Thailand where it is allegedly called "Nareepol."

The Narilatha flowering plant is said to grow in the hilly slopes of Himalayas in India and is understood to bloom once in two decades only; in other words it blossoms into a lady like flower after a 20-year interval.

It is believed that in times of yore the concentration of hermits and sages doing deep meditation would be shattered at the sight of these lady-shaped flowers.

The Narilatha or Liyathambara flowers said to be in the shape of a women are considered one of the most wonderful and rarest of flowers in the world.

But is it really true???? Who captured or made this? Looks to be some photo shop or even a photo editing trick?

Meanwhile a few facts have been found about ‘Naarilatha.’ It is an orchid belonging to the family Orchidaceae and comes under the Genara of Habenaria.

All Habenaria species are terrestial orchids with tubers. Around ten Habenaria species have been found in Sri Lanka out of which 5 are endemic to the island.

If any of the readers here know anything about this plant Narilatha, you are welcome to post a comment here.

Deven Joshi, Haldwani Wed, May-10-2017, 3:28
The validity of the Narilata tree should be verified by Botanists.Only then everyone will be satisfied about its existence or otherwise. If true,then who will not want to have this plant in their garden.

DGRamarao, Tanuku.634211 Mon, July-11-2016, 7:57
Only an artist can draw a female figure with such perfection.Some tree roots etc can distantly resembles a deity like Ganapathy. I challenge any one to show such aflower. Some trickster attached to the tree with gum or needles some plastic or or some pulp.The tricster has fooled many, Such tricksters should be punished by the state, OURS IS ALREADY A COUNTRY WITh SUPERSTITION.the person who is spreading this hoax always remains anonymous That speaks volumes------Ramarao

Fact or real it’s confusing. It is believed that this flower blooms after 20yrs, so if this picture is posted on 2004 that means it’ll give flower on 2024 again,so dear photographer til then please take care of the plant, after 20years I’ll come to visit the place where the plant grows.

Never realised there were so many gullible people in the world. This ranks with the Haggis being a smallish hairy creature that has 2 legs longer on one side of its body so it can run around the side of mountains in Scotland.

Representations of the Nariphon tree are very common in Thai comic books, both fresh[8] and dry,[9] often in manga style.[10] Amulets and charms in the form of Nariphon girls are sold throughout Thailand.[11] Folk stories claim that the tree grows somewhere in the Phetchabun Mountains and hoaxes are common; these include pictures of Nariphon girls growing from trees[12] as well as dry Nariphon maidens.[13

A beautiful flowers
M R Goplani, Gandhinagar Sun, July-12-2015, 9:02
I think it is fake photographic trick. This could only be possible when you put some growing vegetable or fruit in the mould and allow it to take a shape you need like in this case a young woman. In Japan farmers grow square shaped and heart shaped water melons exactly with this technique. It is for botanists to go and do bit of research to establish the existence of such plants in Himalayas. May be, if such botanical gardens are established in India, it can be good tourist attraction !
vayu, india Thu, June-25-2015, 1:39
Obviously a fake ! At best it can be fruit put in the plastic mould when growing and it took the shape of the mould when fully grown Such posts are amusing at best but quite misleading for a novice
kavithrani, srilanka Wed, June-24-2015, 2:11
Hi guys I red al u r commands.... even I thought it was fake first but its not a fake every think is true...jus Go and type in Google as ( nareepol tree history).... click on the images there u can find some dry nareepol flows pick jus click it on that u can c the history of that flower... its not fake its true.. thats is gods creation guys....

This is obvoiusly a net haox. there is no such thing like Narilatha. No where is any recent or ancient books this is mentioned. All the images of "naris" shown are identical which is not natural. The tree is not a Himalayan Tree, but tropical tree. Do not waste time on investigation. There is no such thing. Like this only India is made a laughing stock around the world, by creating sense of false pride (such as "authentic reports" that Indians had the technology how to make aircrafts and fly in Veda time etc!).
K.N. Tiwari, Ranikhet / Haldwani Tue, May-26-2015, 7:58
Seeing the pictures in different posses, it is confusing. But, there are many who claims its genuineness, so they may be approached early and properly and then it can be planted/grown some where in botanical gardens as a rear species.
Birbai Basumatary, Guwahati Wed, May-13-2015, 10:23
Is it really true? It is incredible thing if not fake.
Uttia Majumdar, Mumbai Fri, May-1-2015, 9:52
This flower is fake. In front view the woman covers with crossed hands, in side view the hands are at her sides. How is this possible? Moreover, there is no mention of this flower in Wikipedia.

I don’t know about truthiness but yeah one thing I know about flowers which I have seen so far that flowers are always identical faces. They can not have different faces in a single tree.
Subhadeep Biswas, Kolkata Wed, April-15-2015, 12:22
I am a Botanists.... this is a fake photoshop the above article says this plant belong to the orchidaceae...if so its fruit cant have persistant calyx as seen in those pics and its flowers has to have a modified petal called labellum

anusuya, chennai Sat, March-21-2015, 9:16
I cant able to believe this . but the same time if it is true means really it is amazing. Nature is really very beautiful.
Yusuf, Pune Thu, March-19-2015, 12:27
i do not fully believe this to be true! I would also not deny its false as nature has so much that we do not know.

But if we browse all over the internet i see only 4-5 photos. Some have zoomed it some have changed the size, some have created mirror image. My question is why only 4-5 pics we have? If it s unique there has to be at least 100 pics. For example if u consider any monuments like Taj Mahal, charminar or any any Indian monuments you will get 1000 of pics in at least all directions and all sizes and angels. Why only 4-5 pics if its unique in itself?

By the way, if there is any tree growing rupees and dollars and euro, please let me know. I don’t require it to grow rich - I only want to know if the replies that we used to get in our childhood when we begged some money from our parents were true or not. They used to curtly reply, "What do you think I own a tree full of money or what? Get lost" there is no money. " Even, I ’ve used it in my story that a child dreams about a tree laden with lozenges. Maybe, if I search the Internet, I’ll find a lozenge-tree. With images narilata tree available in the net, I think the childish dream is heading for reality. By the way lata means creeper in sanskrit but narilata is shown hanging from a tree.

a big LOL, its not even a good photoshop, It freaked me out when someone sent me the images via messanger, and you are calling it beautiful? It seems like some maniac had killed these women and hanged them to tree, and some silkworm kinds have layered those dead bodies. believe me, if it is true - its definitely not beautiful.
This is totally a fake one , this directs the new generation people into a wrong direction.........

If it’s true a scientific research should be done by Indian government and scientist and should obtain geographical patent for such plant and also preserve the same because if it’s truce it should be a pride for INDIA.

ASHOK KUMAR, NEW DELHI Wed, July-9-2014, 3:20
if it is a should have the parts right and the like...i seemed to me that some of those so called flowers are half (only the legs), as what i have red, a flower bud(under developed) has all the undeveloped parts, they just grow/elongate/extend but this picture shows that it was like in the sci-fi movies..haha.. some of it have their hand crossed while others on the side...some were parallel to each other while others overlaps...the inconsistency of the shapes are remarkable since flowers of the same tree/plant should have the same shape..another fail in on the legs... Agree[2] Disagree[0]

Prakash, Mysore Thu, March-13-2014, 11:20
I dont understand author says it sin Himalayas and Thailand also mentions Srilanka. Second in any plant the flowers are similar, but here some are diff, like covering the part, side st hands ect. Its fake I feel.
SURESH GUPTA, DELHI Thu, March-13-2014, 3:50
Its totally fake never seen in India it is creation
Ravi Kumar, Muscat Thu, March-13-2014, 12:12
The point is author says that the Narilatha flower plants grow in the Himalayan region in India and they bloom at 20-year intervals. If so, pictures may be fake and for illustration purpose and the story may be true, never know?? till they bloom again??

These kinda naked female shaped flowers are available in Bangalore also (Mantri mall Lakshmi gift shop) they are made up of hard plastic and sometimes of this story is totally fake
Gururaj Kulkarni, Karnataka Wed, March-12-2014, 1:20
It is a fake for sure..but one Dr Rajesh Ojja has commented that he has seen it...he would have told the location??but he has not mentioned...why nobody else has seen it??the reseachers could have done the culture in the lab to see if its true??..this is just a trick to fool the public...and the best part is it is in put up things which are real!!!

The Nariphon (นารีผล), also known as Makaliphon or Makaliporn (from Pali makkaliphala, Thai: มักกะลีผล, RTGS: Makkaliphon) is a tree in Buddhist mythology which bears fruit in the shape of young female creatures. The maidens grow attached by their head from the tree branches.[1] This tree grows at the Himaphan, a mythical forest where the female fruits are enjoyed by the Gandharvas who cut the fruits and take them away.[2] The Nariphon is also mentioned in the Vessantara Jataka in which Indra placed these trees around the grove where the Bodhisattva Vessantara meditated.

Its fake.
Shriram M. Bhuskute, Nagpur/Amgaon Dist Gondia (M.S.) India Mon, March-10-2014, 9:46
I have not come across any reference of such plant is existing on the earth. This is totally constructed using software techniques.
SNeha, DELHI Mon, March-10-2014, 8:36

Ajit Ahuja, delhi Mon, March-10-2014, 11:38
It is fake.These are plastic molded dolls hanged by threads of fiber and designed cloths covering.There should have been a difference in shapes and sizes of flowers.All the flowers seem to have blossomed at the same time with perfect barbie shapes.Somebody has created these for adult or porn movie.

Fake picture...
Dr.N.Subrahmanyam, Hyderabad Sun, March-9-2014, 7:25
I have done my doctoral work on some epiphytic orchids.I am amused to notice how one track the male mind is when it comes to a womans body. Flora of different regions as we know are well documented by British naturalists.I have not come across any orchid of this kind so far.If ever there was any such plant an orchid or otherwise it would have been given a botanical name which largely are Latin names.So to my perception the digital technology created something to titillate the male mind and several probably believe it.
Ashish Panchori, Ahmedabad, India Fri, March-7-2014, 3:41
I dont think it rs true bcoz there no other pics uploaded only 2-3 pics are available n also there is find some errors like hand position are different, so its difficult to believe that its true......
Dr. T K Pramanik, Asansol (WB) India Wed, February-26-2014, 11:49
It is totally a fake picture so far I think, since I crossed 30 years teaching experience in Botany.It never looks like a flower rather seems to be fruit. Moreover if it belongs to Orchid family, how it could be a tree ?
rashmi, bangaloree Wed, February-26-2014, 11:25
dont tell the exact place it will be destroyed by some idiot people very soon
Dr.Rakesh ojjha, almora Mon, February-24-2014, 11:04
...yes ,I have seen this plant during one of my shooting schedule ,which was about rare plants and species ,in india ...though this was an chance discovery of this medium sized tree,but we could not shoot this as our batteries had dried up by that time... ...though we planned to come back next day but could not make it due to extreme weather conditions
nisathvarma, pollachi Thu, January-23-2014, 4:34
it is impossibel where is the tree located
Ujjwal, Mumbai Tue, December-10-2013, 12:45
In the pic, at some places the stem is attached to the flower from head ... at other places at back. The front facing flowers have thier hands covering the provate parts. Few side facing flowers have thier hand side ways. Enough reasons not to believe it.
annette, austria Fri, November-22-2013, 9:09
i have heard about this flower, long time ago but did not see it..after seeing this pix i had to believed it..its amazing, and true
Dilip Kolhatkar, Akola , maharashtra Wed, November-13-2013, 11:17
It seems that some one is fooling the entire reader community. If this plant is genuine let us know the exact location in Himalayas. If it is true I will visit in person with some keen botanists and will verify the truth of the same. Let us know the exact location of these plants/trees.
alicia, Santiago Chile Sun, November-3-2013, 7:52
NO creo absolutamente nada respecto a la planta...puede fácilmente ser un truco....
ashu, tamilnadu Sun, August-18-2013, 12:56
totally fake.if it is true then why it is not published in medias please avoid this type of notice
Pramila, Mumbai Thu, August-8-2013, 10:48
There is no reader or person has confirmed or posted new pictures after this pictures on the internet.... If this is not true then the person who created this story should be made accountable....
ramashray, doharighat . mau (u.p) Sat, July-20-2013, 9:18
if this is true then nature is so great
A.K. Gautam, Lucknow Tue, July-16-2013, 1:26
Totally fake or hoax mail...An interesting fact in this mail is, if you see all three pictures available, the flowers of this plant have two different hand’s position. One for modern society and another for orthodox society..How bizzare!!!!
Mario DE JESUS, East Timor Sat, October-20-2012, 4:36
Narilatha is may culture name Rei de Nari in East Timor
S R Choudhuri, Moradabad Sat, July-7-2012, 1:22
It is totally noncense. The photos are cunningly engineered. Had it been true, the botanists would have known and made the whole world aware about this plants. It would have been a tourist attraction. Of course, the offender for making money only has driven his brain for this nasty idea.For misleading he/she should be jailed.

fake. not the real Narilatha flower plants. google it.
mer, PH Sat, February-4-2012, 3:43
if it is a should have the parts right (calyx, corolla, stamen, pistil) and the like...i seemed to me that some of those so called flowers are half (only the legs), as what i have red, a flower bud(under developed) has all the undeveloped parts, they just grow/elongate/extend but this picture shows that it was like in the sci-fi movies..haha.. some of it have their hand crossed while others on the side...some were parallel to each other while others overlaps...the inconsistency of the shapes are remarkable since flowers of the same tree/plant should have the same shape..another fail in on the legs...
olalekan, lagosian,Nigerian Fri, February-3-2012, 12:17
una dey eat them?
ANAND GURUNG, NAGALAND Wed, February-1-2012, 1:47
i never new about this plant but its really very wonderfull and terrific....anyway if its a creation of almighty.we must accept it.
ville, zambosur Tue, January-31-2012, 11:17
it is impossible i think they can be prove if all the photos are same like the Steam of tree and all parts of the whole tree so that they we know all the details of your photos take also other photos to prove that the flower is growing and what part of the flower start to shape like women
