Vandiyur Mariamman Teppakulam is affiliated with the Vandiyur Mariamman Temple and is a major tourist attraction in Madurai. It is mostly used for religious reasons. It is a temple pond complex with a man-made island in the center. It lures thousands of believers despite being barely 2 kilometers from the renowned Meenakshi Sundareswara Temple. This temple tank, which draws its water from the River Vaigai, is one of the largest temple tanks not only in Tamil Nadu but also in South India.
