Why to visit Thimmamma Marrimanu

Among the man-made wonders that demonstrate the superiority of human intellect, we learn that Anantapur is home to one of the magnificent natural wonders granted by nature on this area. The banyan tree Thimmamma Marrimanu is the largest in South India. The tree's branches span across 5 acres of land 100 kilometres from Anantapur. Thimmamma, a woman who committed sati after her husband died, inspired the tree's name. The belief that visiting this location can bless a childless couple with offspring makes it a popular tourist destination.
