Queen's Bath, Hampi

3.6
#7 of 19 in Historic Sites in Hampi
Over five centuries old, Queen's Bath remains one of the best-preserved sections of the World Heritage-listed Hampi monuments. Designed as a private bathing area for the king and his royal consorts, this structure probably formed part of a larger leisure complex, where the imperial family rested surrounded by dozens of attendants. A fine example of Indo-Islamic architecture, the rectangular structure features a relatively plain exterior and ornately decorated interior. At the center sits a pool nearly 2 m (6.5 ft) deep, surrounded by elaborate balconies and small windows. Fed by a vast network of canals and aqueducts, this bath once contained fresh water perfumed by thousands of aromatic flowers.

    Loved how well this is preserved. Apparently the queen entertained royalties from other countries where they swam and even did yoga there :)  more »

    Again the best part of any place in hampi is that you are alone. There is no crowd, no security, no one. Queens bath is one such place. The drive till bath is also awesome, through the ruins.

    Queen's bath is a square shaped building with a square bath ensconced by arched pillars, it has fairly plain exteriors. However, the interiors are quite stunning..In olden times, the bath was supplied with fresh water through a channel and the bed of the bath has holes to drain the water...The entire structure has been constructed with a verandah running around it that faces an open pond in the center with the arched balconies projecting into the pond...

    One of the major attraction of hampi. A small place, but has low maintenance. The structure and sculptures look amazing.

Where to stay in Hampi

You'll find a number of simple guesthouses and homestays located in Hampi itself, primarily in the Hampi Bazaar district. North and south of the river, they offer comfortable rooms in modest former residential buildings. Further afield, a selection of more upmarket resorts and hotels sit on the banks of the river and the nearby lake to the northwest. Many visitors choose to stay in Hosapete, to the southwest, or the small town of Kamalapur, located just south of Hampi. Both offer a greater range of accommodations than Hampi, including hotels, resorts, and hostels.
