GanjalKhan Bath

in Kerman is part of the Ganjali Khan complex which was built in the 17th century, during the Safavid era, and transformed into an anthropological museum since 1971.

The paintings, the tiling, the stucco work, the arches, and the calligraphy are among the beautiful ornamentations that complete the exceptional architecture of this Hammam.
From the bazaar, a curved corridor gives access to the Bineh (a space that is normally characterized as a semi-hot, semi-humid area) and to avoid a direct view of the interior and to keep a constant temperature.
There is a difference in height around the Bineh so that you can take off your shoes and get ready before heading to the hot section.
The Bineh offered separate spaces according to the profession of the people, traders, employees, and religion. Everyone had their part.
An intermediate passage between the Bineh and Garmkhaneh (a place washing process takes place and is normally characterized as a hot, humid area) is called Miandar.
In the Garmkhaneh, there are wax mannequins showing washing and rinsing.
The place reserved for the governor had a sort of sundial.
The penetration of light through the onyx indicates sunrise (some people entered the public hammam early in the morning to bathe, an ablution ritual that was done before morning prayer).
A model shows the practice of phlebotomy that was done in the past in Hammams. The removal of decayed teeth was going there as well.
In another place, there are cabins for waxing with the famous depilatory powder called Vajebi.
The staging of a massage is a dream … A well-being that we did not deprive ourselves of.
