A stand or bench made to hold water pots and pitchers is known as khadvanja. It is generally made of wood or metal and has arrangements to hold two or three pots. It is constructed to also have storage space for tumblers needed for drinking water. This khadvanja, made of welded metal rods, had two rings on the top to hold the pots upright and smaller rings on the front to hold the tumblers.
