Must see · Architectural Building · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Very nice to visit. And don't forget to visit the roof. The roof is more interesting for me than the bath, because it's more special. But you could visit some similar traditional bath home in Iran. Although it is one of the nicest. So I recommend you to visit it if you have enough time.
  • Very beautiful architecture with amazing colors. Highly recommend to see the inside as well as the rooftop. Definitely worth the entrance price.
