1. Ponds near Indian temples

Normally at every temple and pilgrim place in India, there exists a holy pond. This water body or pond is called Teertham or Koneru or Pushkarini. Most of the newly built temples don’t have this pond. If we observe ancient temples, the pond will be there for sure and a story follows with it. And most of the famous temples were built along the river banks. So, what is the connection between water bodies and temples? Why there are ponds at ancient temples of India?
