Inside Red Fort in Delhi

Hammam (fyrir miðri mynd)

"On the north of the Diwan-i-Khas lies the bathroom set or Hammam, consisting of three apartments separated by corridors. The floors and dados of these apartments are built with white marble, inlaid with floral patterns of multicoloured stones. The two rooms on either side of the present entrance were used it is believed, by the royal children for their bath. The eastern apartment, with three fountain basins, one of which is reputed to have emitted rose-water, was used mainly as the dressing room. There is a basin in the middle of the central room. The western apartment was used for hot or vapour bath, the heating arrangement being fixed in its western wall." (
