Queen's Bath, Hampi

(170+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • While in Hampi a visit to the queens' bath is a nice pitstop during the bicycle tour under the summer heat. The bathhouse itself is quite small and not much to see yet cooling and perfect for a small ...  more »
  • Believed to be the place built for the Queens of the Royal family...this is just a small visit for about 25-30 minutes  more »
  • The bath is lovely, if there was water in the tub, it would be beautiful, but in the heat, it would also turn green. Great site to enjoy.  more »

  • Visiting hampi made me realize how talented old architects and artists were. This is well maintained place with a neatly maintained garden in the front. Good for taking family photos.. The technology used in here makes you feep whAaaaaat! 😀 Spot highly recommended for visitors.
  • 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.
  • It's good place for 10/15 munit take some photos and rest doun the garden just outside.
  • Queen`s bath is building is having good architecture. Drainage and plumbing design is excellent.
