Habitat comments: "tropical dry evergreen forest... a 'sacred grove' or 'temple forest'... very close to human settlement (~0.2 km)... about 5 ha remain under forest cover" and there is "forest encroachment for expansion of temple structures, construction of road, cattle grazing, resource removal (fodder, firewood, medicinal plants, timber, etc.) and the impact of temple visitors by way of cooking inside the forest during festive occasions, vehicle parking and solid waste dumping (polythene, glass bottles, etc.)"
the climate is "tropical dissymmetric" with two monsoons and a March-May dry season
