The Dargah of Baba Shah Muzaffar is located on left bank of the Kham River, on Panchakki road in Aurangabad . Baba Shah Muzaffar was a Sufi saint and a great spiritual advisor of Aurangzeb. He built a memorial where Baba Shah Muzaffar was buried within the grounds.

Panchakki

Another attractive feature of the place is watermill known as the Panchakki. Water pumped underground from a reservoir in the hills 6-km away collects in a tank, now teeming with enormous Khol fish, to drive a small grindstone once used to mill flour for the members of the Madrasa, or theological college, next door. Directly beneath the fish tank, sealed behind a wall at ground level by the river, is a large assembly hall supported by four rows of enormous pillars. The whole complex was an impressive engineering feat for its time.
