Can you id this plant
Location : Elagiri hills - Tamilnadu
Elevation : 1500 m
Probably cultivated as it was in a temple.
Euphorbiaceae!!! but which one?
Euphorbiaceae for sure but not sure of the name
it is Suregada angustifolia i think.
Thanks ... I think you are right!!
Looks different from images at 
http://www.biotik.org/india/species/s/sureangu/sureangu_09_en.html
Yes, good image of Suregada angustifolia.
Thanks, ... But why the leaves look different from the images at the links?
I overlooked. The leaves are opposite here, crenulate, fruits solitary, 3-lobed. This should be Excoecaria crenulata Wight.
Thank you once again for pointing out.
