Photographer's Note

The staggered entrance gives access to a first chamber surrounded by six spacious apses. Close to a pool for first ablutions, bathers could undress and have a rest. These narrow passages led to a row of dome covered halls, each to which served particular purposes such as massage, hot and cold baths, etc.
Hammam-e Ganjali Khan has recently been converted into an anthropology museum with true-to-life wax figures bringing back the memory of everyday scenes of the past.Today, the old Hammam assumed the form of an anthropological museum of waxed men performing various stages of their ablutions. Special locally made bars of soaps, wooden combs, shoes and other objects are also displayed.
