The sides are faced all around with cut granite and surrounded by a handsome parapet of the same material, measuring 950 feet on the East and West and 1000 feet on the North and South. The whole layout is exceedingly well proportioned and gracefull in effect.

The tank is filled by a channel from the Vaigai River through an ingenious system of underground channels. The festival called Float (Theppam) is being celebrated as commemoration of the King's Birth Day which falls in between Jan-Feb, from March to September it is dry and used as a playing (cricket) ground.
