The Deodar Cedar (Cedrus deodara) is a species of cedar native to the western Himalayas in Eastern Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan and India. Among Hindus, as the etymology of deodar suggests, it is worshiped as a divine tree. Deva, the first half of the Sanskrit term, means divine, deity, or deus. Dāru, the second part, is related to the words durum, druid, tree, and true. Forests full of Deodar or Devadāru trees were the favorite living place of ancient Indian sages and their families who were devoted to the Hindu god Shiva. To please Lord Shiva, the sages used to perform very difficult tapasya (meditation) practices in deodar forests.
