Kerala Temples Ban Oleander After Woman’s Death

In Kerala, two temple boards have banned oleander flowers following the accidental poisoning death of 24-year-old Surya Surendran. Oleander, known for its toxic properties, is widely used in landscaping and traditional medicine despite its dangers. The ban, instituted by the Travancore and Malabar Devaswom Boards, aims to prevent similar incidents by restricting the flower’s use in temple offerings and prasad. The situation highlights the lethal potential of oleander and underscores the importance of safety in the use of traditional medicinal plants.
