Queen's Bath, Hampi

(3.5/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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 marvellous piece of architecture and engineering. How did they even think of such great things at that time when we find it difficult to reach water to our urban areas today. How the entire scheme of things are integrated. Sadly we dont even maintain them or learn from them.
  • Nice engineering construction at that time. This is place was build for easy water flow to store it and the garden around it is very nice.
  • Fills you with a sense of wonder. One of the better sites at hampi
  • Beautiful Indo Islamic architecture. The water channels are gone. Sat a long time visualizing the batch full of water and revelers! What a culture it was!
  • Visit early morning or just before sunset. During most of the daytime it is too hot.
