Marvel at masterfully carved bay windows, pointed arches and ornate corridors of Queen's Bath, a colossal Indo-Islamic bath centered around a pond. A rectangular veranda built along a large water tank features a number of balconies protruding into the space above the water. This 500 years old structure set in sandstone has a typical exquisite Vijayanagara Empire style of the 14th century with well-preserved stucco ornaments on the ceilings. Surrounded by a moat on all its sides, the building is connected with freshwater supply through an aqueduct.
