Queen's Bath, Hampi

3.6
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.

  • What a luxurious lives the queens must have had! This is a beautiful building comprising a mixture of Hindu and Muslim architectural styles. The queens used to have their royal spa here with sandalwood and turmeric paste. The centre was once used as a swimming pool. There is still a canal along the building for water to flow in and keep the place cool.
  • The whole building is made with a veranda around facing a big open pond at the middle. Projecting into the pond are many balconies. An aqueduct terminates in the pond. The balconies are decorated with tiny windows and supported by lotus bud tipped brackets. The whole pool is open to the sky. This brick lined pool is now empty. But it’s believed once fragrant flowers and perfumed water filled this bathing pool.
  • The structure is very well preserved. It is a must visit. There are a lot of other sites close by eg. The elephants stable; Lotus temple etc.
  • Great place to visit and learn more about the Indian culture, but maintenance is not good. At least they should have given a respect to our culture. Shame of this people who are maintaining. They are collecting money from visitors on the name of Swachbarath also.
  • One of the must see place in hampi.. attractive place. maintained very well. There is parking is free. May be have some rush .There is no special parking slots.outside of the attraction is used for parking. Better pick an auto instead of guide. it is the economical and useful method. Place is surrounded by grass garden.so good photos can take.
