What is an Indian Lotus

Indian Lotus in Japan What is an Indian Lotus

Lotus plants have evolved to thrive in slow-moving river flood plains and delta environments. Every year, hundreds of thousands of seeds fall to the pond’s bottom from lotus stands.

While some seeds sprout right away, and the majority are eaten by wildlife, the rest can remain dormant for a long time while the pond silts in and dries up. The roots of the lotus plant are planted in the pond or river’s soil, while the leaves float on the water’s surface or are supported high above it.

The flowers are frequently found a few centimetres above the leaves on robust stems. The lotus flower is a famous symbol in Hinduism. In general, lotus flowers represent spiritual enlightenment, growth, purity, and birth, among many others. The flower symbolises one’s ability to perform their duty without being influenced by any desire, pleasure, or gain.

Izunuma and Uchinuma, which are also known as swan wintering grounds, are home to a variety of aquatic organisms. The sight of a huge swan flying overhead from a swamp’s embankment is breathtaking. Above all, the lotus flowers that bloom during the summer months are worth seeing! The aroma of lotus blooms is carried by the wind as I stand on the edge of a wetland. You may also take a boat excursion on the lake during the annual “Hasu Matsuri,” when you can observe the lotus up close.

A famous temple that was opened with the wooden Amida Buddha Nyorai statue, a cultural property designated by the prefecture, as the principal image. A 700-year-old “castanopsis tree” rises in the precincts. Castanopsis is a tree that grows in warm places, and the southern part of Miyagi prefecture is the northern limit, and it is designated as a nationally designated natural monument because it is valuable. Hass flowers are in full bloom in the pond beside the famous temple. It is a light pink Oga lotus and is also called an ancient lotus. It is a valuable spot where you can see the competition between the natural monument, the castanopsis tree and the lotus, so please visit it for summer sightseeing.
