Looks like some species of Campsis to me.
Family: Bignoniaceae.
Pl wait for experts' comments.
I would suggest Tecomaria capensis which comes in a range of many colours.
It doesn't look like  Tecomaria capensis , because in Tecomaria capensis,  the stamens and style are exerted but here in the pictures they are inserted http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=5&taxon_id=242414464
Further, Campsis are mostly recorded as vines (please refer http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=3864&flora_id=2
I feel it is something different. 
I think ... finally got it correct: Incarvillea emodi. If concluded, the thread clearly shows how experts on this group don't get carried away and won't stop till a correct identity is achieved.
Yes Incarvillea emodi (Royle ex Lindl.) Chatterjee of Bignoniaceae family.
