The large water reservoir is dedicated to Bhishma, the forefather of the Pandavs and Kauravs.
There is a legend attached to this water tank. It says that, when Bhishma lay on his bed of arrows, he felt thirsty and asked for water. To fulfil his desire, Arjuna immediately shot an arrow into the ground and let loose a stream of gushing water. This is how the Bhishma Kundis believed to come into existence.
