Dear friends,

Sending photos of Night blooming Jasmine.  It is known as Raat rani in Hindi and blooms during night.  The flowers are highly fragrant.

Regards,

Mani.

By any chance have you attached photo of Din ka raja? Instead of rat ki rani?
Flower shape differs.

Cestrum diurnum :White Chocolate Jasmine, Inkberry, Day Blooming
Jasmine. .Unlike Night Blooming jasmine (Cestrum nocturnum), this one
is most fragrant during the day: flowers have very strong chocolate
scent, as good as fragrance of famous Portlandia.

Yes Madhuri ji, it is Din ka Raja. It is my mistake.  Thanks Mahadeswara ji for the correct ID.
Regards,
Mani.
