A juice prepared from the pulp is known to be of high medicinal value. The tree is dedicated to the Hindu God, Lord Shiva, and in Shiva temples in India the ritual of offering the trifoliate leaves is considered very holy. This importance appears to be due to the medicinal properties of the entire tree, seed, fruit, bark, root, and leaf.
