This is actually a Square that encloses a tower. The tower offers a panoramic view of the bustling Thanjavur Town. It was built at the time of the 8th World Tamil Conference. You can take a panorama of the city from the tower here.
Tholkappiar Square, located on a sprawling 0.70 acre with a 108 foot tall four storey tower in the middle, was constructed at a cost of Rs. 70 lakhs.
