We had to get one of the locals to help us find it. We wondered around for ages and kept ending up in the same spot, the map we had did not help at all. We were glad to have finally found it. Well worth an exploration.

good to enter if you have a guide who will tell you the story how it was build and purpose of each room, otherwise it is just a white stone baths what you can visit within 5 min. If you go, ask to go on the roof as well where you can see a bit of the city from upstairs.

Small site but interesting history. It took us a while to find it but it was worth the small entrance fee and a few minutes with a good guide.

Intersting history to see and hear how Sultans and even more, his wives lived. Road to the Baths needs desperate upgrading!

would normally start our holiday with a Turkish bath - this time we did it on our last day - and was not disappointed. Great way to relax before a long flight home. Had a 1 hour massage which was fantastic

This would be the only tourist site that isn't falling down. It seems preserved and looked after and hopefully will remain that way.

We were just walking past and noticed this place. We only paid 3,000 each to get in and for the money it was worth it. You get a nice view of Stown Town on the roof and the inside is good to see. Just a shame it is not running anymore.

If this is your first time seeing a persian bath, yes, then it can be worth a quick visit. All the chambers are very small and they doesn't differ that much from eachother. It must have been beautiful when it was active, now it's no that impressive. I didn't ask to get up on the roof or to see where... More

This is a quick little stop, but for only $1 there is nothing to lose. Yes, it is bare, but the architecture is really interesting. Quite fascinating to learn how the water was heated and the baths worked. Pity it is not operating today.

After reading what others had written we nicely asked the lady about the other places on the roof and behind the baths. At first she was hesitant but after some persuasion she locked up the baths for us and took us on an amazing tour around the back of the baths. We all loved it. Thanks for the previous advice...
