Traditional Ponds

"Dasa Koopa Samo Vaapi
Dasa vaapi samo hridha:
Dasa hridha samo puthra
Dasa puthra samo druma  (Vrikshayurvedam) "


"Ten wells are equal to one pond
Ten Ponds are equal to a backwater
Ten Backwaters equal to a Son
Ten Sons are equal to a Tree"


There are 5 traditional ponds inside the Pallipattu Illom campus. We still maintain these ponds. The members use these for bathing and for irrigating neighboring areas. These ponds help the villagers to maintain the ground water level too.
