Siniallikas (blue spring) was an ancient sacrificial spring, named after its crystal clear water and its characteristic blue colour, which is due to the blue clay settled at the bottom of it.
According to a legend, a blue-eyed maiden, who was teased by the manor owner, drowned herself in the spring.
The spring is said to reveal a treasure if seven brothers drink from it together. The water of the Siniallikas spring was believed to have the power to heal. Silver coins were thrown into it as a sacrifice.
Nearby, there is a hill fort, where ancient Estonians built a stronghold in the 12th–13th century, and Lake Sinialliku.
