Sponge Iron Temple: Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this temple, built in 1820, is a mix of Islamic and Gothic styles of architecture.
Radhakrishna Temple: Situated in the KTPS Colony attached with a Kalyana Mandapam, constructed by KTPS.
Kala Bharathi Grounds: Kala Bharathi is the Biggest ground in the Khammam District and is also considered one of the finest in the the state. The history of the Kala Bharathi is irrevocably bound up with that of Paloncha Cricket Club, which did the pioneering work in cricket not only in Paloncha but in the whole of the Khammam District . The present Kala Bharathi came in existence some time in the year 1964. It is not certain as to whom the land belonged to although some records show that it was the property of KTPS while some other records state that it belonged to the Radhakrishna Temple. However, the fact remains that the land was effectively passed into the hand of the Paloncha Cricket Clubwho in turn presented it to the citizens of Paloncha for recreation. In course of time Paloncha Cricket Club established with its headquarters at the Kala Bharathi Grounds. The pavilion was built in 1971 and cricket was played for a long period in Sylvan surroundings.
