It is said that, during the 14 years of aranya vaasa, Rama accompanied by Sita and Lakshmana, passed through Adoni. Sita was thirsty by the time, she reached this place;there was no water source in vicinity, so Rama shot an arrow in the ground, then water splashed out, there by quenching Sita’s thirst. Local Dhobis (washer men) even show some small well like construction, claim to have the arrow still deep in there. Apart from natural springs, water from Tungabhadra river fills up this tank, and is the source of water for entire town.
