Of all the 'mallige', my personal favorite is mangaluru mallige. It looks awesome on women & has a mind blowing fragrance. In mangalore they use the banana fiber to tie these beautiful flowers in a string. The worst part is, it gets dried faster & withers away along with the fiber used to tie them. There is no event without these flowers in mangalore, be it an auspicious occasion, function& place of worship. Mostly adorns the beautiful plaits of Mangalorean women.
