Situated a stone's throw from the city, Panchakki is a 17th century water mill. Its underground water channel travels more than 8 km to its source located in the mountains. The channel culminates in a beautiful artificial waterfall that powers the mill. Legend has it that the mill was used to ground grain to feed garrison troops, disciples of sufi saints as well as pilgrims who would stop by. The historical importance of the complex is heightened by the fact that this was once home to some of the great sufi saints who came to India around the 12th century. In fact, Baba Shah Musafir, one of the great saints in the sufi tradition made this complex his residence. Among the other local attractions in the complex, there is a Banyan tree, which is believed to be no less than 300 years old.
