Queen's Bath, Hampi

3.7
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.

  • Such a royal structure just to have bath is itself a astonishing stuff. This place was built very well and crafted even better. It's beautiful.
  • 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.
  • Hampi is amazing. Words alone can't tell the story. It must be seen to be appreciated.
  • In a bad shape compared to other historical sights. Has been vandalized by recent visitors. But definitely an amazing moghul structure!
  • An ancient building which contains a a large bathing pond structure which was used by the queen of the Vijayanagara empire. It consists of holes to bring water and for draining was well. Also there are places to sit and relax around the pond. The pillars of the queens bath building carries excellent carvings.
