How does water in an earthen pot become cool during summer ?

An earthen pot or a Matka is porous in nature. Water placed in earthen pots is evaporated from minuscule pores it has as it is made of mud particles. This evaporation of water produces a cooling effect. Some of the heat energy that is generated is used in the process of evaporation. Hence, water stored in earthen pots tends to become cooler in summer.
