Hope Elsholzia cristata 

In this case spikes/ cones are compact with flowers on all the sides. In E. cristata, flowers are borne on only one side and spikes are not compact. Sir, I visited the place in late season, so I could not click the flowers.
Thanks, ...

Although compact  spikes were appearing to have flowers on all the sides in most of my photographs, some spikes in one photograph were having flowers only on one side.
So, I am also considering it as Elsholtzia ciliata/ Elsholtzia cristata.

I also agree as per images at Elsholtzia ciliata (Thunb.) Hyl.
