Dear DInesh,
Bauhinia flowers resemble orchid blossoms (if you stretch your
imagination a bit :), so Bauhinias are called Orchid Tree in general.

Yes
This has been photographed in such a nice way that it does resemble an orchid flower.
A nice picture of Bauhinia acuminata...... a small tree from family Caesalpiniaceae.
