The climax of this place can be seen and experienced on the full moon day between January 15 - February 15 every year, when the float festival happens. It is a large tank, remains waterless most of the year nowadays, converts into the maidan of madurai. One of the best spaces in Madurai to spend time.

Even when there is no water it is a sight to see,especially in the evening. The temple is in the middle of a vast pond which is green when there is no water. Very soothing sight in that busy commercial town. Nice place to walk in the evening.

Vandiyur Mariamman Teppakulam is the pond located near to Vandiyur Mariamman Temple and situated at a distance of about 2 km from the Meenakshi Amman Temple. Literally, Teppakulam means temple pond mainly used for devotional festivals. At present there is no water in the pond.
