Found this tree in a temple near Vellore.

Looking quite like Stereospermum. check with its following species
S. colais OR S. chelonoides 

May be S. chelonoides. But not sure.

Did you check with the indicated species?

Stereospermum tetragonum DC.   ?? 

Thanks a lot. Do we have Stereospermum sp. lot in North?

We have only three species so far in efi site, with one being cultivated. Pl. check details with comparative images at 
I am also unable two decide between these two based on these images: Stereospermum tetragonum & Stereospermum chelonoides

I think both species are mixed in the links.

But atleast we have to find which one did Rabindranath Tagore had in his poem.
