Mahabubnagar: The trunk of more than 700 year old Banyan tree, popularly known as Pillalamarri, crashed bringing down several branches along with it on Sunday evening, frustrating the efforts of forest officials trying to save the tree, a tourist attraction in Telangana.

For the past few weeks officials of the tourism department have been trying to revive the age-old tree by taking expert advise from Forest Research Institute in Warangal.

Despite the department’s efforts, tourists have been very irresponsible and have continued to climb the tree to take selfies.

It has to be mentioned that the destruction of one of the world’s oldest living banyan tree is totally man-made.
