The white, paper-like bark of the tree was used in ancient times for writing lenghty Sanskrit scriptures and texts.The thin, papery bark is very shiny, reddish brown, reddish white, or white, with horizontal lenticels. The bark peels off in broad, horizontal belts, making it very usable for creating even large pages for texts. According to legend, the bark was also used as clothing by attendants of Lord Shiva.
