|Orchids in Nepal|
Thursday, March 06, 2014
As described in our previous blog, Nepal hosts many flora and vegetation which have tremendous medicinal properties. Orchids are the other class of plants that have high aesthetic as well as therapeutic potential. Most of the orchids fall under the category of epiphytes- the plants that grow on tree trunks in the forests and other similar habitats.
The orchids that are found in the wild environment are used for treatment against various illnesses of respiratory system, reproductive system, central nervous system and other infectious diseases. Some are also discovered to possess anti-cancer properties. Called ‘Sunakhari’ in Nepali, this plant has many species which are found in the wildlife of Nepal. According to a research conducted in Nepal, about 60 species of orchids have been found to cure about 38 illnesses which demonstrate the significance of these flowers in the field of natural medicine.

Janakpur is one of the popular tourist destinations in Nepal which is located in Dhanusa district. It is more a site for pilgrimage than for merely doing a tour. It is the birthplace of Sita, the wife of the Hindu God Ram who was the daughter of king Janak who’s been well-known in Hindu mythology for his intellect and wisdom. It is believed that both of them got engaged and eventually married in Janakpur which is portrayed by the statues of deities and saints performing the wedding ceremony at Ram Janaki temple. Due to this reason, a big festival called ‘Bibaha panchami’ is celebrated each year with special functions, to mark their wedding anniversary.
Besides this, Janakpur is the host to the only railway station of Nepal, which connects Janakpur to Jayanagar of India.
