Sultan Amir Ahmad Bathhouse, Kashan

(4.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Elaborately decorated with turquoise and gold tiles, the quiet meditative ambiance of Sultan Amir Ahmad Bathhouse evokes its past as an important public gathering place. The 16th-century hammam--named after a sultan who was buried in a nearby mausoleum--features an octagonal dressing area (Sarbineh) and a hot bathing hall (Garmkhaneh). It was restored on two occasions: after 1778 earthquake and in 1996. Take a self-guided tour through the hamam, and visit the rooftop to see many small domes and scenic views of the surroundings.

  • Great place with a lot of decorations. Visit it in order to understand How a tre persian hamman looks like. Besides from the roof you have a nice view of the town. Highly recommended!
