We visited this at sunset and then it became dark, but it was still a nice stop given the lights, water, and ambiance. Try to see the shrine to the Sufi saint, which is around the corner--- only men allowed inside.

The people over there are trying to make magic out of science, it is a check dam, ingeniously created a lot of years back, and with the force of the water, they are able to make a grinding system to grind wheat, and serve the poor with rotis, the idea is good, and that it happened so many years back, adds that zest to it, that place can be kept much more nicely.

It's a water mill depicting the engineering skills of the past. Interesting. In the city. Will not take much time. There is also a museum. The mill is non-functional as ground water levels are altered due to borewells in the city.
