The tank has been built by constructing a dam across Minneriya River. The dam is about 2 km in length with the maximum height of 21.34m. The tank covered an area of 4,670 acres and it receives Mahaweli water through Elahera Giant Canal.
Because of this giant construction and its usefulness to the irrigation and agriculture, the countrymen regarded the king as a god and he was named as Minneri Deviyo (God of Minneriya). A Devale dedicated to the Minneri Deviyo still survives on the dam of Minneriya Tank.
