The origin of rain chains : Rain chains were originally used in Japan to transport rain water from temple roof tops to ground level hundreds of years ago. This rain water was stored in large barrels and underground containers for further reuse. The concept of rain chains deserves a huge applause since in today’s date and age there is a huge drive to conserve and prevent wastage of rain water. Resources are scarce and intelligent minds are working towards spreading awareness in the world to conserve water worldwide. With a little bit of contribution from every individual we can make a positive impact towards improving the environment and making the world a better place to live in.
