I believe that hadsome plant is a ficus. To guess further, a Ficus benghalensis (Banyan Fig).

The trunk is massive, fluted. The bark is smooth, softly puberulous when young. The leaves are large, 8-25 cm long x 6-20 cm broad, stoutly petiolated. The lamina is coriaceous, nerved, ovate to obovate in shape. The lamina is glabrous on the upper face and finely pubescent beneath.

Are your plant's leaves leathery (coriaceous) near the edges, shinny on top and softly hairy on the bottom and petiole (leaf's stalk)? Is the bark smooth?
