Simply astonishing when full of water. The greatness in thinking and vision of our ancient kings is unbelievable. Drain arrangements to collect rain water designed hundreds of year ago are wonderful. Glad to see the municipal corporation making good efforts to sustain the beauty of this place. Ideal spot for morning walkers. Sunrise is simply superb. Good spot to visit in the evenings with family and kids especially you can find low cost, native foods, simple entertainment for kids. Visit to nearby Muktheswarar temple and Mariamman temple takes just few mins of walk.
The Vandiyur Mariamman temple situated on the bank of the giant and beautiful teppakkulam. It will be pleasant to see when water is filled. During the summer season and most of the time it is used as playground. Sri Mukkuruni Vinayagar idol in Sri Meenakshi Amman temple was found when digging this pond. People of Madurai make their evenings happy by spending time here. Sri Meenakshi and Sri Sundareswarar will come here and bless the people from the 'Teppam'and the festival is called as 'Teppathiruvizha'. During that day the main doors of Sri Meenakshi Amman temple will be closed.
