Bangalore's own cherry blossom tree
Bangalore's claim to the Garden City fame comes alive in March when the entire city is blushing pink.
Known as the Tabibuea Rosea, and a part of the Jacaranda tree, the tree has been imported from continental America and planted in many parts of Bangalore.
Its delicate pink flowers line the roads and look like giant candy floss. In a city marked by the bright colours of the Gulmohur, Copper Pods and Jacarandas, the Tabibuea Rosea blossoms look like pink clouds against the pale blue sky.
