No one really knows, how water goes up to the ponds on the top of the rock.
Ubuntu Saucy & Gnome 3.8.2 installed, Unity is there too.
Shell/GTK theme; Nokto 3.8
Icons Ubuntu mono dark
Even if the water isn't pumped to the top or brought by precipitation, I am not surprised to see water there. Have you ever wondered how water gets from tree roots to the top of tall trees? The answer is most likely the same for both instances: Capillary Pressure. If the rock under the palace is formed from porous rock or even a non-porous rock with micro-fractures throughout (which may be expected on an ancient volcanic island). The attraction between water and the narrow pore channel walls can easily provide enough force to lift water vertically many hundreds of feet.
The same principle is utilized by trees; water is propelled upward due to an attraction to the walls of the small spaces/channels between the plant cells.
Perhaps you should rephrase your statement from "No one really knows how..." to "Most people don't know how..." or maybe even "Most people don't care why..."
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
