This is the picture of a tree in my college's botanical garden.enter image description here

First I thought it to be a banana tree for its leaves but then seeing its lower part, I don't think it is a banana tree. So what is it's scientific name? I am just curious. Is it any hybrid or something like that plant?

Edit: This tree is from Bangladesh in South Asia. This tree is approximately 9-10 feet (I think, I cannot go near the tree). This picture is from Spring season.
