At a distance of 5 km Mahabubnagar Bus Station and 104 km from Hyderabad, Pillalamarri is a large banyan tree located in Mahabubnagar district of Telangana.

Pillalamarri or Peerla Marri, an 800 years old banyan tree, is a major tourist attraction in Mahabubnagar district. The tree has many banyan trees which grow in its proximity like its children hence the name Pillala-marri. It is also difficult to find the main trunk of the tree. It is spread over three acres of land and can accommodate about 1000 people in its shade.

There is a tomb of a Muslim saint under the tree and hence the name Peerla Marri. Pillalamarri is an ideal place to have a family picnic. The tourism department has started an exhibition centre here. A historical Shiva Temple which was submerged under Srisailam Project was relocated here. A mini zoo with bird park and animal parks were also added as attractions to this place. There is a science museum which houses some of the artifacts found in the region. In the premises of Pillalamarri there is also a pond with boating facility (available only during the rainy season).

Timings: 8 AM to 6 PM.
