2.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
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.
