The most interesting place to see in Mahabubnagar is the famous banyan tree called Pillalamrri, which is about 4 km from the town. There is a tomb of a Muslim saint under the tree. At least 1000 people can easily take shelter under this 700 year old banyan tree and its branches extend over an area of 3 acres. In Telugu, "Pillalu" means children & "marri" means a banyan tree. There is also an aquarium, a small zoo and an Archaeological Museum here. There is a boating facility in the premises of Pillalamarri available only during the rainy season.
