A friend writes from Oman:
 
Attached are two pictures of long-stemmed, fragrant white flowers that are currently in bloom in Oman... I have seen them in Indore in my child hood....I cannot recall when they bloom in India though...what is the local name of these trees/flowers? Pl do let me know, if you can....
 
Can any member help please?
Regards
Dev

I think these are the flowers of  Millingtonia hortensis. (Indian Cork Tree)
