Kordasht Bath: One of the Largest, Most Beautiful Baths Surviving in Iran - Tourism news

You may enter the building via a staircase leading to its first vestibule; then you will arrive in the bath’s Sarbineh– dressing room- with an octagonal structure, which is attached to the ceiling with eight columns.

The lime art on the bath’s walls is a main attraction of the building. The bath’s water used to be supplied by Aras River.

The building was constructed at the time of the great Safavid king, Shah Abbas (1588-1629), and was later renovated during the reign of Qajar kings to be used as the residence of Abbas Mirza, the son of Fath-Ali Shah (1789-1833).

When Shah Abbas built the bath, it could only be used by the kings and rulers of the region. However, after the Safavid dynasty, the first Qajar King Agha Mohammad Khan (1789-1797) turned the bath into a public one.

A few years later, poor maintenance resulted in the partial destruction of the bath, and people no longer used it.
