PillalamarriThe most important place of interest near Mahaboobnagar is the famous banyan tree called Pillalamarri, which is about 8-km from the city. There is a shrine of a Muslim saint under the tree. From a distance the tree presents the appearance of a small hillock with green foliage but on reaching nearer, it looks like a large green umbrella under which about thousand people can easily take shelter. The tree is a very old one and it covers an area of 3 acres (1.21 hectares).
AlampurAlampur is located on the banks of Tungabhadra River and abounds in antiquities of the Chalukyan times. It is situated on the border between Kurnool and Mahaboobnagar districts of Andhra Pradesh. It is one of the most sacred "Shaivite" centres in A.P. It is a paradise for tourists interested in archaeological studies.\r\nAlampur was known in the past by various names such as "Halampuram", "Hamalapuram" and "Alampuram". A damaged inscription dated AD 1101 pertaining to the reign of the western Chalukya King Tribhuvanamalla Vikramaditya VI, however, mentions the name of this place as "Hatmpura". \r\nAccording to the local history there are fifty 'Theerthas', eighteen 'Maha Theerthas' and sixty-four Ghats at this place. Among all the Theerthas, the 'Papavinasa Theertha' is considered to be the most sacred. It is believed that the Brahma built the nine temples of 'Bala', 'Kaumara', 'Arka', 'Veera', 'Viswa' or 'Vishwa', 'Garuda', 'Swarga', 'Padma' and 'Taraka Brahmeswara'. This place got its prominence because of the two groups of temples called Brahmesvara and Papanatha on either side of the village. The Badami Chalukyas built these temples in (7th century AD). The entire complex is a treasure house of history and art. These temples do not follow the Dravidian temple style and are closer to the Northern and Western Indian styles of architecture.\r\nThe 'shikharas' (spries) of all these temples have a curvilinear form and are adorned with the miniature architectural devices. The plans and decoration of these temples resemble the plans and carvings some the rock cut temples of the Western India.\r\n
