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.

  • This hammam is no longer in use but turned into a great Museum. Not being very internationally tourist don't expect to find too much information in English, purchase a guide to learn more. Don't miss the rooftop which offers a beautiful view and view the classic architecture in domes. You do not agree to be accompanied by personnel in Exchange for a tip! When we went there was a gentleman clearly under the influence of undesirable substances and we saw him set fire to a piece of paper and throw it down a well to show depth. I hope I don't do routinely, although I fear the opposite. It's historical, stand up to these nasty!!!

  • 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!
  • Quite a nice ancient bathhouse, well maintained with beautiful tiles and paintings. Don't forget to get on the roof, it's worth the climb !
  • It's a sorrow that these bathhouses are obsolete in our modern lives.
  • Very nice spot! Old traditional bathhouse with an amazing view from the rooftop.
  • Go on the roof, it's a nice view from there.
