have medicinal properties.If we wear the slippers  made

out of lavancha, the crevices of the feet are healed.

In hot summer, the mats weaved out of lavancha roots are

let down as screen on windows and  water is sprinkled

frequently upon them. The air that enters  in,  through

these mats  of  lavancha is cool and  has a   sweet

fragrance.   At Idugunji, a place in Uttara Kannada,

(Karnataka),there is a famous Ganapathi temple.

The  Ganesha  masks  made out of lavancha, make

good souvenirs.
