On the left is the cold and the right is the hot water gushing out from the same direction located at Arinta Fountain at Iponle Ekiti, in Nigeria.
This fountain which has been converted to an awesome recreation center now, mysteriously has both hot and cold spring flowing side-side from the same rock. Geologists could not explain the root of this beautiful fountain from a rock. This was noted to be the only one of its kind in the world.

People visit this place for recreational purpose and to see the wonders of creation. It also has a resort with visitors’ accommodation. This fountain of clean water, is surrounded by trees and mountains.
