Panchakki


in the heart of the old city lies the panchakki which is a water mill over 150 years old built by a sufi saint. The pictures are not modern art but fish chasing sweatmeats made from sesame seed.

The is an engineering marvel! This mill receives its share of water that travels through an underground channel from a source which is 6 km away in the mountains. The water is then discharged on to the wheel creating a fascinating waterfall.
