Expert Answer:

Earthern pots, as they are made up of clay, have many small pores in it.  Through these pores, water evaporates due to outer temperature of the atmosphere. Due tothis evaporation some amount of heat is also lost, which brings cooling effect inside the earthen vessel and help in keeping water cool.
