In fact, this bathhouse is one of the great buildings which was built in Zand Dynasty around 270 years ago in their capital Shiraz. There are some wax sculptures with traditional costumes in different parts of bathhouse with sound effects that show the old lifestyle.

This bath is one of its kind which remained in good condition, partly reconstructed. Here you can feel the real Iranian bath and its culture( with the description of a good guide). The statues inside help you feel the real atmosphere
