Back in those days, people normally stopped by whenever they see such clay pots. Yes, just to have a sip of water to heal their thirst along the way. On the other hand, the donors fill up these pots with clean water believing to attain the blessings from Lord Buddha in their next lives. Nowadays, advancement in our lifestyles and society introduced so called BOTTLED DRINKING WATER. Consequently, I’m not sure whether we will see such clay pots in the future .
Do you see plastic strings attaching the cups. Any guess? :D
