தண்ணீர் பந்தல்

… it means Water Kiosk, normally set during the summer times to help pedestrians, bullock cart riders and anybody who can’t afford / doesn’t like to spend on aerated drinks / bottled water etc. Many philanthropic groups also set up “Watery Buttermilk” (aka நீர் மோர்) kiosks along with these water booths.

One such kiosk setup by the Railways Union near Loco Works, Perambur.
