One of the most interesting place to see in Mahabubnagar is the famous banyan tree called Pillalamarri which is about 4 kms from the Mahabubnagar. From a distance the tree presents the appearance of a small hillock with green foliage but on reaching closer it looks like a large green umbrella.
It is a 700 years old banyan tree and its branches extend over an area of 3 acres.There is a archeological museum to visit.After 2003 AndhraPradesh Tourism department has taken charge and developed the area. this can be a great picnic spot for a family on a weekend.There is an entrance charge for Rs 5 and Rs 3 for the museum.
