DESCRIPTION

First part of King Bath in Fort, Delhi, (India). “The Hammam (‘Bath’) consists of three main apartments divided by corridors. The entire interior, including the floor, is built of marble and inlaid with colored stones. The baths were provided with ‘hot and cold water’, and it is said that one of the fountains in the easternmost apartment emitted rose water.” (ASI) “The Hammam is basically a building that housed the baths, used by the emperors. On the eastern apartment, stood the dressing room. In the western apartment, hot water used to flow through the taps. It is said that perfumed rose water was used for bathing purpose. The interiors of Hammam were embellished with floral designs and white marble.”
