Admins, I would like to rename this article to Kallanai which is the original name of the dam. 'Grand Anicut' could be redirected to Kallanai. Currently, it's the other way around. Lotlil 05:55, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
Britannica calls it the Grand Anicut. Even recognizing that "Kallanai" is an older title, isn't "Grand Anicut" the commonly accepted name in English? Dekimasuよ! 04:29, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into my request. The "Grand Anicut" is the anglicised version of Kallanai. I ran a quick Google query and while Kallanai returns 2110 hits, "Grand Anicut" returns 870 hits. Lotlil 05:26, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Kallani DAM, also called as Grand Anaicut in English is belongs to Thanjavur District, state of tamilnadu. I had noticed in one of Tamilnadu Favourite film star(Rajinikanth) movie, called Lingaa.... he is saying that it is in thiruchirapalli district, suddenly i was shocked and googled it, even in wikipedia its mentioned as kallanai belongs to Trichy, But actual its under the district thanjavur, — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:19, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
