Shahi Hammam

The 17th century Shahi Hammam (Royal Baths) fell into disuse during the decline and fall of the Mughal Empire. The 1,000 square meter complex was recently restored and conserved over two years. These interventions include the exposure, conservation and display of the original waterworks, drainage and heating networks as well as the historic floor level, restoration of the original entrance, internal chambers and architectural features including provisions for internal and external illumination. The original frescoes, dating from the Mughal period, were also conserved.
