Inside Panchakki, Panchakki, Nagsenvan, Aurangabad, Maharashtra 431001, India
This little place in Aurangabad was a pleasant surprise. Not going in expecting much, I marveled at the ingenuity of humans; building a system of earthen pipes to gather water from a source kilometers away and using it to run a flour mill. The reservoir also naturally cooled the room below it where villagers gathered in summers to talk and eat grain milled by Panchakki.

One of the most colourful and indiscreet cities of India, Varanasi is one of the seven holiest cities for the Hindus. Also known as Kashi and Benaras, this place is known for its temples, ghats and the colourful people. The narrow alleys and crowded streets seem to be extremely blissful in spite of all the noise and chaos all around. People come here just to take a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges. Varanasi is also known as Uttar Kashi and is situated on the western banks of the Ganges. It is said that a dip in this river frees one from a lifetime of sins. People even say that death here is auspicious as people attain moksha if they die here. Some people also come here tp creamate their loved ones and the sound of the holy temple bells are really soothing music to the ears.
