Panchakki

Gardens in Aurangabad

The garden complex of Panchakki, literally meaning ‘water wheel’, takes its name from the ancient hydromill which, in its day, was considered a marvel of engineering. It’s still in working condition but is today really only of minor interest (unless you’re a hydro-engineer perhaps).

Baba Shah Muzaffar, a Sufi saint and spiritual guide to Aurangzeb, is buried here. His memorial garden, flanked by a series of fish-filled tanks, is at the rear of the complex. It's located 1.5km north of the bus stand.
