No flowers present when picture was taken, only pods.

Leaves reminded me of Khaya species.

Thanks a lot for the id. Now I’m feeling bad to have missed out the flowers of this beautiful tree.
You are really lucky to be staying in Bangalore….which has so many beautiful trees.

Which month did you photograph the flowers? I need to keep in mind.


I have seen flowers twice once around october and other in march
