It is the biggest tank of its kind in Tamil Nadu and one of the most imposing sights of Madurai when it is full of water.The vinayaka idol was found when the earth was being dug out from here to build the Thirumalai Nayakkar Mahal. So, the place attained sanctity and was converted into a teppakulam (tank).
