Athi Varadar Temple Water Tank

The submission of TNPCB’s affidavit, the HR&CE Department told the court that so far they had used only rainwater to fill the Athi Varadar Mandapam as well as Anatasaras, since it started raining immediately after the immersion. After recording the submission, the judge directed the HR & CE Department to file a report by Thursday outlining the plan to keep the water pure and clean till 2059 when the idol would be taken out from the tank next for darshan.

Since the idol, fastened underwater with ancient snake-shaped stone locks, had to be safeguarded for eternity without any damage, he insisted that some effective measures be taken to ensure the quality of the water.
