Here  is  a  picture  of  a  temple  tree  which  I  have  taken  during  my  visit  to  Harinavi in  south  24  parganas of  West Bengal.
Also  known  as Frangipani ( Plumeria acutifolia) , this beautiful  tree is  actually  a  native  of  Mexico  and  Guatemala. It  belongs  to  the  family Apocynaceae. The  tree  looks  awesome  in  full  bloom. The  stem  is  somewhat  crooked  and  the  flowers  are white with  a  yellowish  centre.
It  grows  widely  all  over  India.
Cheers !
