Rajendra--

 Looks like Mexican fan palm, Washingtonia robusta, to me.

Difficult to distinguish between maxican fan palm and chinese fan
palm. I have not seen mexican fan palm in fl, but infl. here indicate
it as Chinese fan palm - Livingstonia chinensis

Sibdas--

 Agreed that Washingtonia robusta and Livistona chinensis can be difficult to differentiate, especially photos of them.

 Here is a pic of Washingtonia robusta inflorescence:

-----------------------

 Livistona chinensis normally has armed petioles only as a juvenile tree, whereas Washingtonia robusta is armed throughout its lifespan.

 Also, if the tree is taller than, say, 12-15m, it is most likely Washingtonia. Livistona seldom exceeds 12m, at least in the USA.

Thanks Ken- for the information. However, it is still not clear to me
whether it is Livistonia or Washingtonia. From photos infl. look
alike. From Rajendra's Photo , I could not make out whether the fronds
are armed (possibly not), one website says L. chinensis has average
height of 15m. Perhaps Rajendra can help us closely looking at the
trees, the fronds in particular.- Regards
