This is identified as Arjun Tree ( Terminalia arjuna )

As per Wikipedia, Terminalia arjuna (Neer maruthu in Malayalam) is a medicinal plant of the genus Terminalia, widely used by ayurvedic physicians for its curative properties in organic/functional heart problems including angina, hypertension and deposits in arteries. Arjuna was introduced into the materia medica of Ayurveda as a treatment for heart disease by Vagbhata (c. 6-7th cent CE).

Photographed while climbing up the Rajgad near Pune-India.
