About "Mariamman Teppakulam"

The Mariamman Theppakulam in Vandiyur - 5km south east of Meenakshi Temple is one of the the huge Temple tank in south India. It was built in 1636 and was
commissioned by Thirumalai nayakar in 1646. The area of the tank and the island pavilion with a garden in the center is approximately equal to the area of Meenakshi Temple.

The length of the tank is 1000 feet and width is 950 feet. The mandapam and temple in the center of the tank enshrines an idol of Lord Vigneshwara, the elephant-faced god. It is said to have been found when the earth was being dug out from here to build the Tirumalai Nayakkar Mahal. So the place attained sanctity and was converted into a Teppakulam (tank).
