It is the Royal bath (Hamam Shahi) of Mashahd!

It is hard to belieave that this beautiful Turkish bath had been buried for about five hundred years and archaeologists have discovered it recently!

The moulding and painting of this bath are really unique and beautiful!

Wow!

That is unbelievably gorgeous.  It really is hard to believe it remained buried for so long.

Yes, I have heard that for keeping the water and the environment warm, baths were usually built underground.


This pic shows the roof of this bath.
