Taking water as a source of energy from 8 km (5 mi) away via clay pipes and pillars, Panchakki (Water Mill) displays a masterful piece of 17th-century engineering set in traditional Hindu architecture. This water mill, still in use, used to grind grain for countless pilgrims, saint disciples, and troops. Get a glimpse of medieval times, admiring a large library with a gold-plated Quran. The complex, once an external abode for Sufi mystics, houses a mosque, madrasa, court, minister's house, and lodgings for women. You can take a cab or wait for the bus to the site, which lies some 8-10 km (4-6 mi) from Aurangabad's train station.

  • Old monument, Use of gravity flow to rotate wheel and used as floor mill. Best thing is, wheel is steel rotating, blades need to be clean. Mosque is clean and well maintained.
  • On of the best old architecture example, Very nice historical monument SomeOne should see. The Panchakki named by the system of the Flour Grinder that gets in action through the water flow which comes from around 8kms away. And These are of underground clay pipes.
  • It's good to see historical place but it's really bad if state govt. not maintain , very bad smell from the water . lot's of fish that's attract you to capture more photos
  • This historical place is very good to visit. The 'Chakki' and big tree there is are to old.
  • A very historic place of aurangabad city. Feel nice to see this water falls without any latest technology.
