In South India, heartwood of the Portia tree is also used to make the thavil, a Carnatic musical instrument. The official botanical name is Thespesia populnea and is commonly known in English as “Umbrella tree”, “Seaside mahoe” or “Indian tulip tree” among others. It is a small tree or arborescent shrub with a pantropical distribution, found on coasts around the world.Source: Wisdom Library: Local Names of Plants and Drugs

The Golerā temple, which specifies how many figures of each category have to be depicted.
