This listing is about the pond or tank (teppakulam means pond), not the temple in the middle. It dates from 1645 when the Vaigai river clay deposits were dug out to make bricks for the construction of a palace. The pond is linked with the nearby Vaigai river.

Still a beautiful sight, especially after dark when the temple is lit. During Thaipusam (full moon festival) floats transport the idols of Meenakshi and Sundareshwarar to Mariamman temple.

The location is less congested than the area around the Meenakshi temple complex. Very good for a walk, especially in the evening or early morning.

This man made waterbody was excavated in 1645 by king Thirumalai Nayakkar when the Nayakkar Mahal. There is a beautiful structure in the middle of this temple tank called the Maiya Mandapam. In the summer months the tank is empty. After the monsoon it brims with water. It is a worthwhile landmark to visit

After so many years, it is good to see the tank full of water in Feb. We visited immediately after the theppam festival. It is worth to spend the evening walking along the tank and locals sure will cherish this every day.

Walk around this glorious temple tank during evening hours, when it’s not very hot. Can take few photos. There are several roadside eateries around, which may not be very hygienic. Must visit, if you are in Madurai .

The Teppakulam (temple tank) is a sight to behold when it is filled with water and the night sky is lit with stars. It is one of the large temple tanks and in Madurai an attraction that you can head to if you have some extra time at your disposal. There is no point visiting the Teppakulam when it is dry. But when the tank is full you will enjoy it in the midst of dazzling lights in the evenings. If you are unable to go inside, you can just take a driver around it. After visiting the Teppakulam you could perhaps head to the Sree Sabarees hotel nearby that is famed for its quality vegetarian food.

The Vandiyur Mariamman temple is located 2 km distance from the famous of Meenakshi Sundareswara Temple. More than 100 year old temple. It will be very beautiful to see when water is filled.
