Looking at the floral crown I think it is Corypha umbraculifera
(Talipot palm). The tree dies after the flowering is over.

Dear friends,

In Malayalam - Kudappana , and there are some places in Trivandrum named after this- Kudappanakunnu , Kudappanamoodu.
     kunnu means hill and moodu means  part of the shoot just above ground
