Nahar -e-Ambari
Underground water through aqueduct: Aurangabad city was designed nicely by Malik Amber considering the safety and beauty. From safety point of view a city wall and 52 gates were constructed in the city. For increasing the beauty of city and fulfilling the water requirement Nahar-e- Amberi System ( hydraulic water carriage system) was developed. There were 12 Nahres in Aurangabad and they supply drinkable water to different parts of city. But due to the careless development of city, some of the historical Nahars (hydraulic ancient water carriage system) are in danger Some of them can still work properly after the minor repairs.

Introduction to Nahar-e-Ambari
In the hydraulic history of Aurangabad, the system of canals was introduced by Malik Amber in 1617 A.D. Aurangabad township had to face the problem of scarcity of water and there were no big dams or water reservoirs in the vicinity. Personalities like Malik Amber, Shah Mehmood of Panchakki and Shah Ali Nehri were founders, designers and planners of those three famous, novel and useful aqueduct systems for the supply of water to the city. Irrespective of the prolonged span of 350 years the systems were stil1 functioning. The inhabitants of Aurangabad were being benefited by this water supply system for 350 years regularly without any tax. The construction of these canals started from the oldest era of Malik Ambar and after the age of Aurangzeb also. The old water supply system is the reminiscent of medieval period. The city of Aurangabad was having a number of Nahars of pure mineral subterranean drinking water. This practice of construction of such aqueducts continued from the period of Malik Ambar (1617) up to the time of Aurangzeb and Asif Jah (1803) for a period of about two centuries. The canals were also constructed one after another by the local kingdoms or by the richest people. The names of these canals are all related to the names of their builders.
