Since people needed water on a daily basis, the well became the main meeting place for both young and old. People would go there to meet, exchange information and have a good time together. However, the local legend of Malik warned children against falling into the deep, cold water. All this made the well a source of life in both a physical and spiritual sense.
They now play host to various cultural and entertainment programmes in the summertime, during which time these places come back to life, if only for a while.
