The main part of the monument, resembling a temple chariot is erected at the point that was once the deepest of the lake. It holds resemblance and high significant association with the Thiruvarur temple chariot. On some days, the place is a venue for several exhibitions and events. Best to skip on a hot sunny day, but an ideal evening location.
