Distance : ~ 100 kilometers.

Drive time :~ 2 hours.

Road condition : Excellent from Hyderabad to Mahbubnagar, last 20 kilometers is average.

Pillalamarri is an 800 year old Banyan tree in Mahabubnagar. The branches of the tree are spread over an area of 3 acres.

Some people claim that it can provide shade to around 1000 people at a time.

Best time to visit is during the rainy season. Let the pictures do the talking.

We took a small video of the place to give you better idea. Watch it in 1080P.

This entrance gave us the feeling that we couldn't spend more than 10 mins. But our entire perspective has changed when we started searching for the parent tree as every tree seemed to be the same. Time flew like a comet when we finished the "parent root search game (The Great Banyan vs The Human)".

After looking at the natural arch, I just had to muddle through wondering "How complicated it has grown!!"

It was a big puzzle for us to find the parent tree. So we started our game and by looking at each tree, everything seems to be the parent and ended up losing with the Great Banyan. Thanks to Great Banyan for growing up so complicated and letting humans loose:cry:

We can see the natural geometric shapes here and there.

This looks like a wedding arch decorated with green leaves.:P

I was shocked for a second by looking at this. It looked like a giant octopus with a human hand on one side and with multiple tentacles.:shock:

Observe carefully :P!!

This is the entrance for Pillalamarri mini zoo which has snakes, different bird species and deers in it.

Our beautiful national bird "Peacock".

Different animals caged inside the fencing. (its a small facility, don't expect huge variety :P)

Spotted a deer holding a disposable glass, proudly looking at his friends that he has found something.

11.jpg

Can you spot his family at a distance chilling under the shade :P

I love this tree, wish I could stand near it and click one of mine :P.

Found few mini temples inside the zoo.

On our way back to Hyderabad, found these bamboo like trees.

Guys any more places to visit on NH7 around Jadcherla?

 

There is one more place called Kolikonda near Jadcherla.

I heard it is very good place. Seems like an unexplored place. I couldn't find much information in web also.

Any one visited?

Even we wanted to visit kolikonda, but we started late in the afternoon. We did not have much time in hand.

Will visit this place in monsoon.:idea:

Awesome post shammy.

If I am not wrong, those last pictures are taken at the eco park which is on the right side while going from Jadcherla to Pillalamarri.

Did you guys explore the park?

Kolikonda is an amazing place. I have visited this place 5 years back.

It will be fun you are interested in trekking.

Nice post. Any latest information about this place? I am planning to visit this place this month. Let me know if it is worth visiting in this time of the year.

 

@Jagan24 If the summer is not much of a bother to you.. you can visit this place. But, I personally would suggest you to start your travel post July. The weather adds up a lot of beauty to the scene and would keep you a little more peaceful  :)

Frankly speaking, place is strictly average.
Avoid it during summer.
Avoid it on Sunday's may get overcrowded.

If you are looking for a quick getaway, would suggest you to visit Koilsagar during Sunrise/Sunset.
It is a fantastic place.
