Superb … Very informative upload!
Where was this tree photographed (Bengaluru) ?


They have four trees in front of the huge Conrad building next to Ulsoor guruduwara.
If you click on the map marker in my link, you can see the exact locations.
Lalbagh also has this tree in front of the office next to main gate.
