The wood is considered as divine and chastened , there fore it has some prohibitions to be used for furniture purpose like chair, flooring , anything which anyone would not do to their deities. They call it sacred and use it for medicinal purpose while having throat problems. The wood also has a strong enchanting aroma which refreshes the mind and proves the fact of its purity. The wood also can be considered as one of the best classes of wood because of its durability to all the climatic conditions.
