This temple was shifted to Jetprole when the Krishna water threatened to submerge the villages after the construction of the Srisailam dam.

The most interesting place to see in Mahabubnagar is the famous banyan tree called Pillalamarri which is about 4 kms from the town. There is a tomb 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 closer it looks like a large green umbrella under which at least a 1000 people can easily take shelter.

It is a 700 years old banyan tree and its branches extend over an area of 3 acres. In Telugu "pillalu" means children & "marri" means a banyan tree. Hence Pillalamarri means banyan tree with children.

There is also an aquarium, small zoo and an archeological museum to visit. There is boating facility in the 7premises of Pillalamarri available only during the rainy season.
