Photographer's Note

The old Hammam has a very detailed and logical architecture specifically designed for a public bathhouse. It has various chambers each open to another one, in the form of a complete circle, to save the heath. The clever architect designed the passages and the corridors curved to stop the outside cold weather to storm the bathhouse. The principal doorway adorned with murals depicting animal scenes. Its demolished plaster works and paintings of Safavid era were restored in 1332 A.H.by a man called Mirza Shokrollah who, inspired by Qajar paintings, could finally manage the restoration. There is a marble table at the entrance that poetically reveals the age of the building, which is 1020 A.H.
