Three kinds of Monkey Puzzles in Bangalore…

Monkey Puzzle Tree

and later, I got the

Monkey Puzzle Butterfly

amongst other things, on a nature trail:

A few days ago, it was very nice to see that someone still cares about our Bangalore heritage, and has re-created the Monkey Puzzle architectural detail for their home:

Possibly this feature was so called because monkeys used to sit on it…it’s also called "Monkey Top".
