Vandiyur Mariamman Teppakulam Madurai
a huge temple tank about 5 kms east of the Meenakshi temple. The
mandapam in the centre has an idol of Vigneshwara (Vinayaka).
This tank was said to have been dug by Tirumala Nayaka. 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).
