Panchakki in Aurangabad

Friday, May 2, 2014

Our auto rickshaw driver told us about this place named Panchakki. He told us that it is a water mill. The water which flows here comes from a hill that is located around 11 km away from here.

We were surprised to hear what he told us. He took us to Panchakki so that we believe what he said.

Description of Panchakki

Again our rickshaw passed through narrow lanes and suddenly it stopped. He pointed out to the left stating that the white structure is Panchakki. We need to take ourselves a ticket at a cost of Rs.5 to enter.

The premises are painted white in color. I guess most of the premises in Aurangabad are painted white in color.

Outside the structure there is a diagrammatic representation of how the Panchakki used to function.

Panchakki which is located in Aurangabad displays Medieval Indian Architecture. It used to get water from a place in the mountains.

I could spot a Dargah named Baba Shah Musafir, a garden, and a mosque in the premises of Panchakki.

Baba Shah Musafir Dargah 
I sate below a tree and viewed the marvel created centuries ago. Somehow I believe that our ancestors were far more superior to us in all fields. They managed with the little they had and made marvelous structures.

Hats off to this place.
