Pillalamarri is popular for a 700 year old banyan tree, which is known for its religious significance. There is a tomb of a Muslim sage close to the tree that is frequented by a large number of devotees throughout the year.
The branches of this tree spread over an area of around three acres. While visiting the town, travellers can also explore historical idols and articles at the archaeological museum.
There is a section in the art repository illustrating several cultures of ancient civilisations. Tourists can also head towards a zoological park and an aquarium. Boating can be done in Pillalamarri during the rainy season.
